Fiction set in Quebec City?

I am planning a vacation to Quebec City and on my drive to the area I would like to listen to some fiction set in the area. Any audio book recommendations?

Bonus points for recommendations for cozy mysteries.

Best answer: The way you ask this question I wonder if you've already devoured the entire Inspector Gamache series of mysteries? One of them called Bury Your Dead, takes place in Quebec City, most of the rest of them take place at least partly in this adorable village of Three Pines. If you're looking for a new cozy series however, start at the beginning, they are great.

Not cozy, but some of the Kathy Reichs mysteries are set in Quebec as well.

The CBC Recipe For Murder mystery series - each episode based on a cuisine - fit the bill for cozy mystery, and have excellent 'audio theater' quality, including locally recorded background sounds. Unfortunately, they're set in Montreal instead of Quebec City.

Gabrielle Roy's The Tin Flute is set in Montreal, which is as close as I can get.

(it is a WONDERFUL work of classic Canadian fiction, though! Try it!)
