British Mysteries Book Club - Wicked Autumn by GM Malliet

British Mysteries Book Club - Wicked Autumn by GM Malliet

Do you love British Mysteries? I know I do! I love reading them and watching them on Acorn and Britbox. Each month we will read a British Mystery, in particular one that has been made into a TV show or movie. Already read it? Watch the show and discuss with us the differences. Already read it, but forgot what it was about? Re-read it and join us for some great conversation and community!

These stories about the most talented British sleuths are always entertaining and each us at the edge of our seats! 

The Zoom Link will be sent to you two hours before the meeting.

This month we will be reading Wicked Autumn by GM Malliet! 

Having spent almost three years in the idyllic village of Nether Monkslip, Max Tudor is well acclimated to his post as vicar at the church of St. Edwold's. This quaint town seems to be the perfect new home for Max, who has fled a harrowing past serving in the British counter-intelligence agency, the MI5. Now he has found a measure of peace among urban escapees and yoga practitioners, artists and New Agers. But this serenity is quickly shattered when the highly vocal and unpopular president of the Women's Institute turns up dead at the Harvest Fayre. The death looks like an accident, but Max's training as a former agent kicks in, and before long he suspects foul play.

Max has ministered to the community long enough to be familiar with alliances and animosities among the residents, but this tragedy confounds him. It is impossible to believe anyone in his lovely hamlet capable of the crime, and yet given the victim, he must acknowledge that almost everyone in town had probably fantasized about the poor woman's death. As Max becomes more intricately involved, the investigation stirs up memories he'd rather not revisit; the demons from his past which led him to Nether Monkslip and the reason why he is so heavily invested in keeping it from harm.
