Publisher's Summary

Winter in Three Pines, and the sleepy village is carpeted in snow. It's a time of peace and goodwill - until a scream pierces the biting air. A spectator at the annual Boxing Day curling match has been fatally electrocuted. Despite the large crowd, there are no witnesses and - apparently - no clues.
Chief Inspector Armand Gamache discovers a history of secrets and enemies in the dead woman's past. But he has enemies of his own, and as he is frozen out of decision-making in the Surete du Quebec, he has to decide who he can trust....
Coming soon: Book 3 in the Chief Inspector Gamache series, The Cruellest Month. It's Easter, and on a glorious Spring day in peaceful Three Pines, someone waits for night to fall. They plan to raise the dead. When Chief Inspector Gamache of the Surete du Quebec arrives the next morning, he faces an unusual crime scene. A séance in an old abandoned house has gone horrifically wrong and someone has been seemingly frightened to death.

A Mystery that keeps the attention - Excellent!

What did you love best about Dead Cold?

I love a story that makes me think, "I know who the killer is" and then in the end ...
The wisdom of Inspector Gamache is truly inspiring. His love for people also reminds me of my love for people. I identify with a lot of the characters in this book even the killer in the end.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, the plot is very good and I was pleasantly surprised when the real killer was identified.

Have you listened to any of Adam Sims’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This one is good but I like it when I don't notice the voice because I get caught up by the story. He read Still Life a little better. But I would still look for other books read by him. The timbre in his voice adds to the story and does not subtract from it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes definitely. This was the best book that I have listened too since 2014.

Any additional comments?

Yes, Louse Penny - keep them coming!!! Watch out Michael Connelly!!

Great depiction of life in a colder clime

Another beautifully written book. A lot of laugh out loud moments for those familiar with life where winters and spring are often very cold and for people who live in areas or families where English and French are spoken equally. The fire scene was astonishingly well done. Once again the narrator has kept the language authentic whether people are speaking their own language or not.
