THE MADNESS OF CROWDS Chief Inspector Gamache/Three Pines, Book 17

by | Read by Robert Bathurst

Mystery & Suspense • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Robert Bathurst returns listeners to the fictional Canadian village of Three Pines in the 17th addition to Louise Penny’s Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series. Bathurst masterfully voices Gamache, his two assistants, and the many characters who inhabit this story. Bathurst’s flawless pronunciation of French phrases contributes to creating the atmosphere of this tiny Quebec village, just coming out of the pandemic and celebrating the Christmas season. Gamache’s 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. Listen to this audiobook not for the crime-solving or the mystery and tension, of which there is little, but for a timely and provocative exploration of the thin line between kindness and cruelty.
