Reds, Raids and Riots: The Panic of 1919-1920

Reds, Raids and Riots: The Panic of 1919-1920

1776, 1968, 2001...all of these can be considered pivotal moments in American History.  Yet often overlooked, 1919-1920 was arguably one of the most transformational periods in American history.  Bombings, riots in the streets, arguments over who (or what) could be considered American, all of these and more came to dominate the landscape.  In this live talk, we’ll explore America.

'Murder, Mayhem & More' Book Discussion: Eight Perfect Murders

'Murder, Mayhem & More' Book Discussion: Eight Perfect Murders

New day & time! Meets in the Community Room, lower level.

Join Loraine for a discussion of Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson

Copies will be available at the Circulation Desk beginning September 7.

"Years ago, bookseller and mystery aficionado Malcolm Kershaw compiled a list of the genre's most unsolvable murders, those that are almost impossible to crack--which he titled "Eight Perfect Murders"--chosen from among the best of the best including Agatha Christie's A. B. C. Murders, Patricia Highsmith's Strangers on a Train, Ira Levin's Death Trap, A. A. Milne's Red House Mystery, Anthony Berkeley Cox's Malice Aforethought, James M. Cain's Double Indemnity, John D. Macdonald's The Drowner, and Donna Tartt's A Secret History. But no one is more surprised than Mal, now the owner of the Old Devils Bookstore in Boston, when an FBI agent comes knocking on his door one snowy day in February. She's looking for information about a series of unsolved murders that look eerily similar to the killings on Mal's old list. And the FBI agent isn't the only one interested in this bookseller who spends almost every night at home reading. There is killer is out there, watching his every move--a diabolical threat who knows way too much about Mal's personal history, especially the secrets he's never told anyone, even his recently deceased wife. To protect himself, Mal begins looking into possible suspects . . . and sees a killer in everyone around him. But Mal doesn't count on the investigation leaving a trail of death in its wake. Suddenly, a series of shocking twists leaves more victims dead--and the noose around Mal's neck grows so tight he might never escape" -- Amazon.com
