The Wonderlust Mystery Series is a book discussion program where readers search for clues, solve puzzles, and catch the bad guys within the wide world of mystery novels. Join us on a fog-bound journey to the British Isles, including England, Ireland, Scotland, and the Hebrides. British mystery novels frequently feature brooding detectives, as well as menacing landscapes and weather. We will delve into police procedurals as well as thrillers set in locations that range from the streets of London to the countryside of Yorkshire.
Meets on Thursdays, from noon to 1pm at Country Bookshelf. Participants must acquire their own books. They are available through Country Bookshelf.
This month we'll discuss The Various Haunts of Men by Susan Hill.
As the story begins, a lonely woman vanishes while out on her morning run. Then a 22-year-old girl never returns from a walk. An old man disappears too. When fresh-faced policewoman Freya Graffham is assigned to the case, she runs the risk of getting too invested--too involved--in the action. Alongside the enigmatic detective Chief Inspector Simon Serrallier, she must unravel the mystery before events turn too gruesome. Written with intelligence, compassion, and a knowing eye--in the tradition of the fabulous mysteries of Ruth Rendell and P.D. James--The Various Haunts of Men is an enthralling journey into the heart of a wonderfully developed town, and into the very mind of a killer.
