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 in Fall 2019 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.
Hercule Poirot comes out of retirement in one of Agatha Christie's ten favorite novels, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.
Roger Ackroyd knew too much. He knew that the woman he loved had poisoned her brutal first husband. He suspected also that someone had been blackmailing her. Then, tragically, came the news that she had taken her own life with an apparent drug overdose.
However the evening post brought Roger one last fatal scrap of information, but before he could finish reading the letter, he was stabbed to death. Luckily one of Roger's friends and the newest resident to retire to this normally quiet village takes over--none other than Monsieur Hercule Poirot.
