Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, November 20 at 6:00 p.m, and the book we will be reading is ELEVATOR PITCH by Linwood Barclay.  Any questions about this either email or call me. I will try to order some of copies for those interested. 
 
In addition, for those of you with extra time for reading I wanted to recommend Julia Spencer Fleming who has a wonderful series featuring Chief of Police Russ Van Alstyne and the Reverend Clare Fergusson. After a long hiatus Fleming will have a new book in 2020, which I am very excited about. The first book in the series is In The Bleak Midwinter. And then I love to introduce readers to an older author whose work you may not be aware of and that would be John Harvey. His series features Detective Inspector Charlie Resneck who is in CID headquarters in a modest sized city in England’s Midlands. His first book is Lonely Hearts and was published in 1989. It was chosen by the Times as one of the ‘100 Best Crime Novels of the Century’.
