Publisher's Summary

One cold November day, a mysterious figure appears on the village green in Three Pines, causing unease, alarm and confusion among everyone who sees it. Chief Superintendent Armand Gamache knows something is seriously wrong, but all he can do is watch and wait, hoping his worst fears are not realised. But when the figure disappears and a dead body is discovered, it falls to Gamache to investigate.
In the early days of the murder inquiry, and months later, as the trial for the accused begins, Gamache must face the consequences of his decisions and his actions, from which there is no going back....
Gripping, surprising and powerful, Glass Houses is the new ingenious and illuminating novel from number one best seller Louise Penny and will leave you spellbound.
This audiobook recording includes an exclusive interview with Louise Penny and Robert Bathurst.

To be savored!

Beautifully written, original, a thoughtful thriller with a central character to aspire to.
Brilliantly narrated. If only there were more...

Best of the series

I savored this book over several days. i would listen two hours at a time and I must say that this one had me hooked.

Not once did I figure out the murderer until it was revealed. I thought back then and realized the clues were there but they were so subtle. I will take pleasure in listening to Glass Houses again.

Ms Penny is at the height of her craft. My only criticism is that when listening vs reading, it was slightly confusing about the time frame. I didn't always know if it was flashback or present. If I were reading I would have been paying a little bit more attention.

The reader is superb.

Mixed feelings

Would you listen to Glass Houses again? Why?

No. I enjoyed the story, but I really don't like Robert Bathurst reading these books. He's an amazing actor. I have so much respect for him, but for me this just isn't the right material for him. Maybe if I hadn't already heard Adam Sims reading the first few, it wouldn't be so disappointing. I loved Adam Sims narration of this series. He is Canadian and brings each character to life beautifully. Even hearing the difference between the French Canadian characters and the English speaking Canadians was valuable. He gave the books a sense of place that you just don't get with Robert Bathurst.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Robert Bathurst?

Absolutely and if he reads the next, I will listen to it because I want to listen to the next Gamache book. If he was reading another story (not Three Pines) I'd love to listen to him narrating, I'd just far rather he wasn't reading this series.

Any additional comments?

I love the characters in these books. I really enjoy the feeling of returning to Three Pines when I begin to read each new story. There's something remarkable about the juxtaposition between the comfort and feeling of home you get from the familiarity of the beautiful place, the warm characters, the cosy bistro etc. and the chilling, tense, angst ridden plots.

Another winner

If you could sum up Glass Houses in three words, what would they be?

Gripping! Completely gripping!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Glass Houses?

The tenderness shown by Armand to Reine-Marie after she had discovered a murder victim.

Which character – as performed by Robert Bathurst – was your favourite?

Ruth Zardo =)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Listening to Armand talk to Isabel in the ambulance on the way to hospital and later when he visited her.

Any additional comments?

The interview at the end between Louise & Robert was a lovely treat; her manner is so genuine and relaxed, I felt like I could sit and chat to Louise for hours =)

Another triumph from Louise Penny

I loved this book - and an excellent performance from the reader. So why not 5 stars? The previous Gamache book was so good, and this one, while excellent, doesn't quite make the same grade. But a 4 starred Gamache book is 10 stars from any other writer.
