Description

THE BRUTAL TELLING by Louise Penny (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

HONORS: Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award - An IndieNext Pick - A Booklist 2010 Top Ten Crime Fiction Audiobook

When a stranger is found murdered in the Three Pines village bistro and antique store, the beloved owner, Olivier, falls under suspicion. Chief Inspector Gamache is called in to strip back layers of lies and expose the final, brutal truth.

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 Earphones® Award-winning 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.

“This captivating performance of an exceptional mystery is guaranteed to touch our intellect, heart, and soul.”—Booklist

“Chaos is coming, old son.” With those words, the peace of Three Pines is shattered, in a mystery that touches the very heart of this closely knit community. Once again, Chief Inspector Gamache and his team are called in to strip back layers of lies, exposing both treasures and rancid secrets buried in the wilderness.

As autumn descends, a stranger is found murdered in the village bistro and antiques store. No one admits to knowing the murdered man, who has kept his identity and his existence well hidden, along with an astounding legacy of cultural treasures. As secrets are revealed, chaos begins to close in on the beloved bistro owner, Olivier, whose past is unknown. Has he also buried himself in this tiny village for a reason? A trail of mystifying clues leads the Chief Inspector across the continent in search of the truth, and then back to Three Pines as the little village braces for the final, brutal telling.

Almost unusable, sadly!

:
The blackstone audio application which is playing host to Louise Penny's novel, has severe shortcomings:

first, if your device sleeps with inactivity, the app stops playing. This means that I have to change my prefs, or keep tapping on the screen to avoid having playback stop every minute or so.

Secondly, if you have the player set to 'play in background', it doesn't stop playing when I get a phone call.

This app would be a great alternative to the overpriced audio books from Audible.com, if it could fix these two issues.
