'Celebrated British narrator and actor Ralph Cosham brings this wonderful murder mystery to life and draws in listeners with his charisma.... the Old World quality of his voice invokes radio murder mysteries from decades past, creating an endlessly entertaining listening experience.' — Publishers Weekly

A Rule Against Murder, the fourth book in Louise Penny's award-winning and critical revered mystery series features the wise and beleaguered Inspector Armand Gamache.

It is the height of summer, and Armand and Reine-Marie Gamache are celebrating their wedding anniversary at Manoir Bellechasse, an isolated, luxurious inn not far from the village of Three Pines. But they're not alone. The Finney family—rich, cultured, and respectable—has also arrived for a celebration of their own.

The beautiful Manoir Bellechasse might be surrounded by nature, but there is something unnatural looming. As the heat rises and the humidity closes in, some surprising guests turn up at the family reunion, and a terrible summer storm leaves behind a dead body. It is up to Chief Inspector Gamache to unearth secrets long buried and hatreds hidden behind polite smiles. The chase takes him to Three Pines, into the dark corners of his own life, and finally to a harrowing climax.

Grab your headphones and dive into the latest thrilling audiobook from Louise Penny's Chief Inspector Gamache series.

I love this author and the narrator is fantastic! I've read a couple of Louise Penny's books and enjoyed them, but my French is lacking, so in my mind I butchered the names of some of the characters. I had to ask my husband for help, because I wanted to be true to the story, and he speaks French. I think Ms. Penny constructs great character development. There were one or two characters in her earlier books that I wanted to know more of their back story, but it never happened until ... I continued to read the series! I can't seem to get enough of her books and the narrator brings the characters alive!

Just couldn't find it even remotely decent. Narration was dragging and boring. Storyline was too slow and never grabbed my attention. Definitely do not recommend

Absolutely LOVE this series! PBS - please make this into a TV series! Inspector Gamache is so much more than a detective. He’s shares a deep wisdom that relates to life’s challenges. Great characters and just plain good reading! Thanks Louise!

The story held my interest. I appreciated the character development. Because I have read a couple of books in the series I also appreciated the additional insights into the main character's history.
