*This month: Mystery & Suspense*
The Genre Book Club meets on alternating months to discuss a novel from one of a number of literary genres. On May 29th, the Club will discuss “Under the Harrow” by Flynn Berry—a debut thriller set in the U.K.
When Nora takes the train from London to visit her sister in the countryside, she expects to find her waiting at the station, or at home cooking dinner. But when she walks into Rachel’s familiar house, what she finds is entirely different: her sister has been the victim of a brutal murder. Stunned and adrift, Nora finds she can’t return to her former life. An unsolved assault in the past has shaken her faith in the police, and she can’t trust them to find her sister’s killer. Haunted by the murder and the secrets she unravels, she is under the harrow—distressed and in danger. As Nora’s fear turns to obsession, she becomes as unrecognizable as the sister her investigation uncovers.
The discussion will be complemented by light snacks and refreshments. Attendees are expected to have read the book in advance. Copies of “Under the Harrow” can be purchased in paperback at The Writer’s Block Book Shop. Registration for the Club is not required.
