Died in the Wool
by Ngaio Marsh

Monday, December 9, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

book cover

Amongst a remote sheep farm on a cloud-piercing peak in the Canterbury Region, a parliamentarian is found dead. Set in author Ngaio Marsh's native New Zeland during WWII, investigator Roderick Alleyn conducts counter-espionage that may be associated with this murder. Why did the killer pack the victim in wool? Join the discussion during the Brown Bag Mystery Readers Book Group.

 

Each month, a member of Brown Bag Mystery Readers nominates a mystery novel and leads a discussion. A librarian is on-hand to facilitate the book chat and to update the group with any news. All Mechanics' Institute members are welcome to join these meetings. Brown Bag Mystery Readers meets the 2nd Monday of every month (excluding holidays).
