Book The Sixty-Fifth

An Inspector Calls by JB Priestly

A well-to-do family in the days leading up to World War I are enjoying a few drinks when a mysterious police inspector interrupts them to question them all about the suicide of a working-class woman who intersected with their lives in ways none of them could imagine.

This is not at all subtle in its message. The (admittedly quite inoffensive) message of don’t-be-a-dick-at-people is rammed down the reader’s throat unapologetically, but the whole thing takes less than an hour to read, so it doesn’t stick around long enough to get on ones nerves.
