Robert Bathurst performs this 18th Inspector Gamache mystery, A World of Curiosities, with the assurance of one who knows the village of Three Pines and its (mostly) gentle residents well, and fans are in for a treat. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss returning to Three Pines, where, years after Gamache and Beauvoir investigated the murder of a mother, her two adult children arrive in the village. Their surprise arrival triggers remembrances of things past. Bathurst weaves several timelines together seamlessly, revealing crimes against women, child abuse, revenge, and murder.
