Description

A RULE AGAINST MURDER by Louise Penny (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

One of Library Journal’s Best Audiobooks of 2009!

At the Manoir Bellechasse, a special memorial honoring the late scion of the genteel Finney family turns bitter as old rivalries surface. The morning after, a body is found. Inspector Gamache, a guest at the hotel, suddenly finds himself in the middle of a murder enquiry, and the hotel is full of possible suspects.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie®-nominated narrator, Ralph Cosham. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“One of the best traditional mystery series currently being published.” (Booklist)

• EXPERIENCE. About 11 hours of narration. Created as a Folium enhancedAudio™ edition, this book includes extra functions and features not found on lesser players.

• PLAYER CONTROLS. Includes listen (play), pause, multi-speed fast forward/reverse, jump ahead/back, chapter skip, volume control, one-touch chapter- and bookmark browser. There is also a “scrub” bar that finds any point inside the chapter with just a tap.

• SLEEP TIMER. Have you ever fallen asleep watching TV or listening to a book? If so, you'll love this feature. Once set, the book will stop, place a bookmark, and allow you to jump back to where you probably began dozing.

• CLEAR & ELEGANT DESIGN. Simple, clean, intuitive, and smarter than average.

• CHAPTER TIMINGS. Always know how much time it will take to finish a chapter. Plus, the progress bar at the top of the screen shows how far into the book you’ve come.

• OFFLINE LISTENING. You are airplane-ready! Once downloaded, listen uninterrupted without threat from a lost network connection. Downloads are usually just 5-10 minutes, but depend upon your network speed.

• AUTO-BOOKMARKING. The player remembers where you stopped listening and returns to that exact spot when you open the book again.

• TELL-A-FRIEND. An easy way to recommend the book to your friends or Twitter feed.

• FEEDBACK. Share your ideas for books, functions, and features. We are very responsive to our listeners and appreciate all feedback and ideas.

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy novels about cunning detective work, or who are fans of Louise Penny’s “Three Pines” series.

_

Wealthy, cultured, and respectable, the Finney family is the epitome of gentility. Irene Finney has brought her four grown children to the Manoir Bellechasse, an idyllic lakeside retreat, for a special memorial tribute for their late father. But as the summer heat wave gathers strength, old secrets and bitter rivalries begin to surface. Then, the morning after the ceremony, a body is found. The family now has another member to mourn. Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, a guest at the hotel, suddenly finds himself in the middle of a murder enquiry, and the hotel is full of possible suspects. Even the Manoir’s staff has something to hide, and it’s clear that the victim had many enemies. The lodge is a place where visitors come to escape their pasts, that is, until the past catches up with them.
