When a peculiar letter arrives inviting Armand Gamache to an abandoned farmhouse, the former head of the Sûreté du Québec discovers that a complete stranger has named him one of the executors of her will. Still on suspension, and frankly curious, Gamache accepts and soon learns that the other two executors are Myrna Landers, the bookseller from Three Pines, and a young builder. None of them had ever met the elderly woman. The will is so odd and includes bequests that are so wildly unlikely that Gamache and the others suspect the woman must have been delusional. But what if, Gamache begins to ask himself, she was perfectly sane? When a body is found, the terms of the bizarre will suddenly seem less peculiar and far more menacing.

The same wonderful cast of residents of Three Pines, plus assorted criminals and other miscreants. I like the way Penny writes, but I found this plot rather convoluted. Perhaps because I am such a financial idiot it was over my head in many areas.

I don’t understand why there are no ebooks available.

I agree that they are beautifully narrated. I would love a digital download version through Hoopla or Overdrive!

Please get this new Penny book, Kingdom of the Blind, on CD. They are so wonderfully read.

I love the inspector Gamache series but I find reading the large print versions so much easier. I do hope you have ordered at least 2! I won't put a hold on it until I know it is available.
