When a mysterious figure appears in Three Pines one cold November day, Armand Gamache and the rest of the villagers are at first curious. Then wary. Through rain and sleet, the figure stands unmoving, staring ahead. From the moment its shadow falls over the village, Gamache, now Chief Superintendent of the Sûreté du Québec, suspects the creature has deep roots and a dark purpose. Yet he does nothing. What can he do? Only watch and wait. And hope his mounting fears are not realized.

Story was pretty undeveloped in my opinion, but I did finish it. Surprised how much I enjoyed the narrator, though! Best narration I've heard on any audiobook yet. I would seek out other books he has narrated for that reason alone. He was that good.

  • Plot line is asinine in so many places.
