Dive with us into the world of mysteries and thrillers in our Death in the Stacks mystery book discussion group. December is our holiday party and we’ll meet from 11:15am-12:45pm.
December’s read is “Murder on St. Nicholas Avenue” by Victoria Thompson.
Frank Malloy and Sarah Brandt are not that only ones who have recently tied the knot. Family friend Mrs. O’Neill was delighted when her daughter, Una, wed the seemingly wealthy and charming Randolph Pollock. She didn’t wonder why such an affluent man would want to marry a poor Irish girl, no matter how pretty she was. But now Mrs. O’Neill has a problem.
Pollock’s servants have found their employer bludgeoned to death with Una cradling his body. Rendered mute by the horror of her husband’s death, Una cannot explain what happened, so the police have charged her with murder and locked her away in the Tombs to await trial.
Mrs. O’Neill would like Frank to investigate the case and save Una, but with Frank and Sarah still on their honeymoon, it’s up to the other members of their newly formed household to do some detective work. But solving the mystery behind Pollock’s death means fist discovering the truth about who he really is… (description from book jacket)
