following a mystery into the heart of conspiracy

Mystery Book Club to discuss ‘Christine Falls’ 

Event has passed

On Thursday, May 6, Thomaston Public Library’s Mystery Book Club will meet over Zoom, at 2 p.m., to discuss Christine Falls by Benjamin Black.
 
From the publisher:
 
"A Dublin pathologist follows the corpse of a mysterious woman into the heart of a conspiracy among the city’s high Catholic society.

"It’s not the dead that seem strange to Quirke. It’s the living. One night, after a few drinks at an office party, Quirke shuffles down into the morgue where he works and finds his brother-in-law, Malachy, altering a file he has no business even reading. Odd enough in itself to find Malachy there, but the next morning, when the haze has lifted, it looks an awful lot like his brother-in-law, the esteemed doctor, was in fact tampering with a corpse—and concealing the cause of death.

"It turns out the body belonged to a young woman named Christine Falls. And as Quirke reluctantly presses on toward the true facts behind her death, he comes up against some insidious—and very well-guarded—secrets of Dublin’s high Catholic society, among them members of his own family.

June's Book Club selection will be decided on at the meeting.
