October 14 @ 9:30 am 11:00 am

Mystery lovers can join us for discussions of mysteries and thrillers.

A Shameful Murder by Cora Harrison

Cork, Ireland, 1923. When, one wet March morning, Reverend Mother Aquinas discovers a body at the gate of the convent chapel, she immediately sends for one of her former pupils, Police Sergeant Patrick Cashman, to investigate. Dead bodies are not unusual in the poverty-stricken slums of Cork, but this one is dressed in evening finery; in her handbag is a dance program for the exclusive Merchants’ Ball held the previous evening–and a midnight ticket for the Liverpool ferry. Against the backdrop of a country in the midst of Ireland’s Civil War, the Reverend Mother, Sergeant Cashman and Dr. Scher, an enlightened physician and friend, seek out the truth as to the identity of the victim–and her killer.

Copies of the book will be available at the previous month’s meeting and then at the Information Desk. Remote attendance is possible; please register in order to have the login information sent to you.
