The Beautiful Mystery is as beautiful as a novel as it seems from its title. The passionate writer Louise Penny has done an outstanding job to produce a crime mystery novel of such a magnitude, which is capable enough to grasp attention of all crime mystery lovers. This book is part 8 of the Chief Inspector Gamache/ Three Pines novel series. For narration, Ralph Cosham seems to be the unanimous choice of the author and he has done complete justice with his part as a narrator.
