I rank Louise Penny right up there with John Grisham. Their writing just gets better and relevant with each book. Their ability to take true events and their emotional and social effects and write a novel about them is exceptional!
THE MADNESS OF CROWDS begins just after a vaccine has been approved as protection from a virus. As usual there is a murder. Why this person was murdered is not understood. As the story goes, it’s complicated! An idea about euthanasia and abortions of the unhealthy ring bells of dangerous dictators hiding in the background. Most people conclude that those ideas would never reach the surface of society again but a charismatic statistician starts a movement with lectures about what “facts prove” that euthanasia should be mandatory by law. All of a sudden with fear and intimidation NEVER becomes POSSIBLE!
This was one of the fastest reads I’ve ever made! I literally did not want to put the book down until I found out who killed the “dead person”! NO SPOILERS ALERTS HERE!
