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.

A Killing in the Hills
by Julia Keller
Check the Catalog>>

When three elderly men are gunned down over their coffee at a local diner, it seems that half the town was there to witness the act. Still, it happened so fast that no one seems to have gotten a good look at the shooter except, maybe, the daughter of the county's prosecuting attorney.

Mongram Murders
by Sopie Hannah
Check the Catalog>>

Hercule Poirot's quiet super in a London coffehouse is interrupted when a young woman confides to him that she is about to be murdered. She is terrified - but begs Poirot not to find and punish her killer. Once she is dead, she insists, justice will have been done. Bestselling author, Hannah, was chosen by Agatha Christie's estate to write this new Poirot adventure.

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