Under the Radar

Our study group will read four mystery/espionage novels that aren’t considered classics, but make for a great read. The Better Angels (Charles McCarry) was poorly received at the time of its release because it included the implausible scenario of terrorists using passenger planes as instruments of destruction. Dead Men Don’t Ski (Patricia Moyes) introduces us to two characters who interrupt a skiing holiday to break up a smuggling ring and solve two murders. An Expert in Murder (Nicola Upson) imagines a mystery novelist visiting post WWI London for a performance of a play based on one of her novels and winding up being drawn into murders. Finally, The Norths Meet Murder (Frances & Richard Lockridge) introduces us to two socialites who become involved in a murder case that is a mixture of Whose Body and The Thin Man. We will read one book each week before we meet and discuss the characters, the settings and the plot. The coordinator will lead the discussion during the first week, however it is expected that study group members will volunteer to lead the next three weekly discussions. Any publisher or edition of the books is fine, including Kindle.
