"Celebrated British narrator and actor Ralph Cosham brings this wonderful murder mystery to life and draws in listeners with his charisma...Cosham's characters are refreshingly original and never overplayed, and the Old World quality of his voice invokes radio murder mysteries from decades past, creating an endlessly entertaining listening experience." — Publishers Weekly From New York Times bestselling author Louise Penny comes a riveting new audiobook. "What happened here last night isn't allowed," said Madame Dubois. It was such an extraordinary thing to say it stopped the ravenous Inspector Beauvoir from taking another bite of his roast beef on baguette. "You have a rule against murder?" he asked. "I do. When my husband and I bought the Bellechasse we made a pact....Everything that stepped foot on this land would be safe." 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 in A Rule Against Murder. Grab your headphones and dive into the latest thrilling audiobook from Louise Penny's Chief Inspector Gamache series.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Cosham at his very best…Characters are refreshingly original and never overplayed, and the Old World quality of his voice invokes radio murder mysteries from decades past, creating an endlessly entertaining listening experience.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Suspects abound, naturally, and Gamache sorts through them with aplomb. One of the best traditional mystery series currently being published.” Booklist (starred review)
“This latest treat in the series will keep fans salivating in anticipation, savoring each delectable morsel and yearning for more.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“What a delight to have Inspector Gamache back on the scene. Penny does a superb job of gradually leading readers into the story. She sets the scene and introduces all the characters and their points of view before the murder happens. By that time, readers are fully invested in what’s happening. There’s so much more going on here than who murdered who. If you haven’t read the preceding books, some terrific stories await!” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)
