The Madness of Crowds
Correlations. The ways in which groups can become so caught up in misinformation and delusions rose to a crescendo in many places as the coronavirus spread. In the seventeenth novel by Louise Penny to feature Chief Inspector Gamache titled, The Madness of Crowds, spurious correlations by a statistician rile up a crowd and infect a community. When murder in Three Pines follows, Gamache and his team need to solve a case that is too close to home. On top of all the usual fine writing in this series, Penny adds a heavy moral question for society that makes the novel all the more engaging.
