Mostly British Mystery Writers (7 weeks) Starts Sept 9

« back to classes page
For those of you who enjoy mysteries, especially British mysteries, this study group should prove to be a treat. We will feature not only true British writers, but also a couple of Americans who set their books in the British Isles. From World War I through the modern day, our writers capture the soul of their characters as well as giving a glimpse into life  during both trying and happy times. We will read: A Test of Wills (William Morrow Paperbacks, 2011) by Charles Todd, introducing returning WWI veteran Ian Rutledge; A Great Deliverance (Bantam Books, 2007) by Elizabeth George featuring Inspector Lynley; The Man in the Queue (Touchstone Books, reprint 1995) by Josephine Tey; Angel With Two Faces (Harper Paperbacks, 2010) by Nicola Upson with our favorite Josephine Tey as the detective; Face of a Stranger (Ballantine Books, 2008) by Anne Perry introducing Inspector Monk; and The Man With A Load of Mischief (Dell, 1990) by Martha Grimes featuring Inspector Jury. All books are available in hardcover, paperback, audio and kindle versions. This is a seven week study group.
