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

For nineteen years this group has read all genres of mystery and crime 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.

After the Crash
by Michel Bussi
Check the Catalog>>

In December 1980, a night flight from Istanbul to Paris crashes in the Swiss Alps. The sole survivor is a three-month-old girl--thrown, unharmed, from the plane before fire ravages the aircraft. But two infants were on board. Both families step forward to claim the child -- one poor; the other powerful and wealthy. Now, 18 years later, the detective who has been searching all this time for the true identity of the "Miracle Child of Mont Terri," wonders if the answer is as simple as he now believes?


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