La Pyramide de glace

I see that Amazon in the United States is now selling Kindle editions in French, though some of the prices seem high to me.

La Pyramide de glace : Nº11: Une enquête de Nicolas Le Floch (Romans historiques) (French Edition), Kindle edition, amazon.com

La PYRAMIDE DE GLACE, paperback, amazon.ca

La Pyramide de glace: Une enquête de Nicolas Le Floch, broché, amazon.fr

I don’t feel 100% certain I know what Amazon in France means by “broché.” I suspect that the book is a trade paperback, and not a hardcover.
