Narrator Robert Bathurst returns listeners to the fictional Canadian village of Three Pines in the 17th title in Louise Penny’s Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series: The Madness of Crowds. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss the return to the compelling narrator-author duo, and all the favorite characters Bathurst voices so well. Gamache’s Christmas holiday is interrupted by the appearance of a visiting statistics professor whose thesis promotes eugenics and threatens Gamache’s sense of justice and his family. A timely and provocative exploration of the thin line between kindness and cruelty.
