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.
This month we'll discuss A Share In Death by Deborah Crombie.
The first appearance of Scotland Yard's Superintendent Duncan Kincaid and Sergeant Gemma James--nominated for an Agatha and Macavity Award for Best First Novel--is reissued. A week's holiday in a luxurious Yorkshire time-share is just whatScotland Yard's Superintendent Duncan Kincaid needs. But the discovery of a body floating in the whirlpool bath ends Kincaid's vacation before it's begun. One of his new acquaintances at Followdale House is dead; another is a killer. Despite a distinct lack of cooperation from the local constabulary, Kincaid's keen sense of duty won't allow him to ignore the heinous crime, impelling him to send for his enthusiastic young assistant, Sergeant Gemma James. But the stakes are raised dramatically when a second murder occurs, and Kincaid and James find themselves in a determined hunt for a fiendish felon who enjoys homicide a bit too much.
