A Better Man: A Chief Inspector Gamache Novel
- Chief Inspector Gamache/Three Pines Series, Book 15
- Written by: Louise Penny
- Narrated by: Robert Bathurst
- Length: 13 hrs and 8 mins
It’s Gamache’s first day back as head of the homicide department, a job he temporarily shares with his previous second-in-command, Jean-Guy Beauvoir. Flood waters are rising across the province. In the middle of the turmoil a father approaches Gamache, pleading for help in finding his daughter. As crisis piles upon crisis, Gamache tries to hold off the encroaching chaos, and realizes the search for Vivienne Godin should be abandoned. But with a daughter of his own, he finds himself developing a profound, and perhaps unwise, empathy for her distraught father.
So worth the wait

Repetitive background story details
Enjoyable and well performed. But the repetitious reminders and flash backs to the joint history of Gamache & J-G became distractingly noticeable.

Great book, easy read, narrator was amazing

Plot twists seem over engineered.
This book reads like a light weight wrote it. Certainly not like a ‘Jason Bourne’ type writer. The character development seemed somewhat shallow.
I skipped ahead to get the jist as it didn’t engage me enough to want to savour every word.
The plot construction was frustrating to me.
