The Madness of Crowds – Louise Penny

The setting of the 16th Inspector Gamache book returns to Three Pines. Post-pandemic issues dominate, in particular a repulsive social agenda that promotes mandatory state-sanctioned euthanasia for vulnerable groups. What follows is a debate over free speech and academic freedom, that of course escalates into a cracking good murder mystery: a very enjoyable read.

One thought on “The Madness of Crowds – Louise Penny”

  1. I loved this book! Mind you I tend to love all her books so I may not be the best judge. However, I do think she has tackled a very worrying topic here, done it very well. In these turbulent times people are being caught up in angry polarizing movements and completely losing their ability to think critically.
