The Game's Afoot Mystery Group
Meets the third Monday of the month except December at 7:00 p.m.

For sixteen years this group has read all genres of mystery fiction; from cozies and amateur detectives to police procedurals, legal thrillers and classic noir. Discussion titles are chosen on a quarterly basis and suggestions from group members are welcomed. So far the group has never read the same author twice.

Copies of the book selections are available for check out at the Library approximately one month before the discussion.

What We Are Reading:

Her Last Breath
by Linda Castillo
Check the Catalog>>

Set in the seeming perfect Amish community of Painters Mill what at first seems like a tragic, but routine traffic accident becomes personal for Chief of Police Kate Burkholder when she discovers that the victims are the husband and children of her childhood best friend, Mattie. The case takes on a more sinister cast as evidence emerges that nothing about the crash is accidental.

by Randy Wayne White

Florida native and fishing guide Hannah Smith uses uncommon resourcefulness, a keen sense of justice and unorthodox methods to track down a missing girl, a case that puts Hannah on the wrong side of violent adversaries.

Look for future discussion titles to be posted later this winter.
