Following a few comments on twitter and the blog and a quick poll on this post on Saturday, it has been decided that because the book we chose to read in July for the Crime book club was the last in a trilogy and some had not read the first two, it would probably be better and easier to start with the first book. We can of course come back and read the original choice later this year or the beginning of next year.
So with that decision made (and I’ve just realised I could have actually added a poll rather than used the comments section! But comments allow for thoughts not just a tick box.) we are now reading The Black House by Peter May and not The Chess Men.
The Black House by Peter May
A brutal killing takes place on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland: a land of harsh beauty and inhabitants of deep-rooted faith. A MURDER. Detective Inspector Fin Macleod is sent from Edinburgh to investigate. For Lewis-born Macleod, the case represents a journey both home and into his past. A SECRET. Something lurks within the close-knit island community. Something sinister. A TRAP. As Fin investigates, old skeletons begin to surface, and soon he, the hunter, becomes the hunted.
The meeting is still set at the usual place and time of Wednesday 16th July at 8 p.m. GMT. I apologise for the changeover this month. I hope you can still make it. If you can let anyone you know who was thinking of attending, about this change, I’d appreciate that. I will be sending out the newsletter next.
See you soon!
