The Wednesday is Murder Mystery Book Group will meet at this time to discuss Postmortem by Patricia Cornwell. Under cover of night in Richmond, Virginia, a monster strikes, leaving a gruesome trail of stranglings that has paralyzed the city. Medical examiner Kay Scarpetta suspects the worst: a deliberate campaign by a brilliant serial killer whose signature offers precious few clues. With an unerring eye, she calls on the latest advances in forensic research to unmask the madman. But this investigation will test Kay like no other, because it’s being sabotaged from within—and someone wants her dead.
The Central Library and Apponaug, Conimicut, and Norwood branch libraries will be closed on Monday, January 21 for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
