Publisher's Summary

When an intricate old map is found stuffed into the walls of the bistro in Three Pines, it at first seems no more than a curiosity. But the closer the villagers look, the stranger it becomes.
Given to Armand Gamache as a gift the first day of his new job, the map eventually leads him to shattering secrets. To an old friend and older adversary. It leads the former Chief of Homicide for the Sûreté du Québec to places even he is afraid to go. But must.
And there he finds four young cadets in the Sûreté academy, and a dead professor. And, with the body, a copy of the old, odd map.
Everywhere Gamache turns, he sees Amelia Choquet, one of the cadets. Tattooed and pierced. Guarded and angry. Amelia is more likely to be found on the other side of a police line-up. And yet she is in the academy. A protégée of the murdered professor.
The focus of the investigation soon turns to Gamache himself and his mysterious relationship with Amelia, and his possible involvement in the crime. The frantic search for answers takes the investigators back to Three Pines and a stained glass window with its own horrific secrets.
For both Amelia Choquet and Armand Gamache, the time has come for a great reckoning.
#1 New York Times bestselling author Louise Penny pulls back the layers to reveal a brilliant and emotionally powerful truth in her latest spellbinding audiobook.
"Robert Bathurst puts his own indelible stamp on Chief Inspector Armand Gamache in Louise Penny's twelfth Three Pines puzzle. ...If you haven't listened to this series, start at once. You'll love your stay in Three Pines." – AudioFile Magazine

Great story, terrible reader

Although I adore audiobooks I will have to read hard copies of future Gamache novels unless a better reader is found to replace Bathurst. He changes the characters' voices from one chapter to the next. He seems incapable of portraying emotion in the characters. This is his second Gamache novel and rather than improving he is worse! PLEASE find a better narrator.

"A Great Reckoning" is a great story.

Louise Penny has become one of my favorite authors and I so look forward to each new book in her Inspector Gamache series. Often it seems that mystery writers who write a series of books with the same main character essentially end up writing the same book over and over again. Not so with Louise Penny. Her characters are multi-dimensional, and they are true reflections of the "human condition". Her books are of the "mystery" genre, yet her writing transcends genre. "A Great Reckoning" could be read/listened to as a stand alone mystery, but I highly recommend starting at book one in this amazing series.
