Mysteries at Lunch

Our Mysteries at Lunch book group meets the third Wednesday of each month at 12:15 p.m. in the library's meeting room. Copies of discussion books will be available at the front desk one month before the group meets. We often have audio and large print copies available as well. Since this group is our “at lunch” group, feel free to bring a bite to eat!

Knockdown by Sarah Graves

Wednesday, June 21, 12:15 p.m.


Jacobia "Jake" Tiptree discovers that the past she thought she'd laid to rest comes calling at her lovingly restored 1823 Federal-style house in Eastport, Maine. Back in her days as a hotshot financial manager she did business with plenty of shady characters, but she's still baffled as to the identity of her nemesis--until she receives a photo of a murdered man.

 
 

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy by John Le Carre

Wednesday, July 19, 12:15 p.m.


The man he knew as "Control" is dead, and the young Turks who forced him out now run the Circus. But George Smiley isn't quite ready for retirement—especially when a pretty, would-be defector surfaces with a shocking accusation: a Soviet mole has penetrated the highest level of British Intelligence. Relying only on his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley recognizes the hand of Karla—his Moscow Centre nemesis—and sets a trap to catch the traitor.
 
 

One for the Money by Janet Evanovich

Wednesday, August 16, 12:15 p.m.


*Meet at John's Restaurant

Meet Stephanie Plum, who sports a big attitude and even bigger money problems (since losing her job as a lingerie buyer for a department store). Stephanie needs cash, but times are tough, and soon she's forced to turn to the last resort of the desperate: family. Stephanie lands a gig at her sleazy cousin Vinnie's bail bonding company. She's got no experience, but abject poverty is a great motivator for learning new skills. If Stephanie can get her man in a week, she'll make a cool ten grand. All she has to do is become an expert bounty hunter overnight--and keep herself from getting killed.
