Join us at The Nightbird Mystery Book Club, a club for mystery lovers of all kinds, meeting monthly on the 2nd Thursday at 6:30. We plan to read a variety of mysteries, from classic authors like Agatha Christie to moderns like Ian Rankin and Louise Penny. We won’t leave out the cozies either, so warm up your teacups! Members will choose a book to read (available through Nightbird for a 10% discount) and discuss each month.
The March selection is Tourist Season by Carl Hiassen.
Take a trip to exotic South Florida with this dark, funny bookthat established Carl Hiaasen as one of the top mystery writers in the game.
The first sign of trouble is a Shriner's fez washed up on a Miami beach. The next is a suitcase containing the almost-legless body of the local chamber of commerce president found floating in a canal. . . .
The locals are desperate to keep the murders under wraps and the tourist money flowing. But it will take a reporter-turned private eye to make sense of a caper that mixes football players, politicians, and one very hungry crocodile in this classic mystery that GQ called one of the top ten destination reads of all time.
