Join our lively group to “investigate” different types of mysteries!  We choose the sub-genre, and a month before our meeting a Cary librarian compiles a list of titles for us.  It’s a different take on the conventional book group.  We discuss our chosen book and discover new mystery authors recommended by fellow members.
