British Mysteries Book Club - The Distant Echo by Val McDermid
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 The Distant Echo by Val McDermid
Bestselling, award-winning author Val McDermid delivers her most stunning story yet in The Distant Echo---an intricate, thought-provoking tale of murder and revenge
It was a winter morning in 1978, that the body of a young barmaid was discovered in the snow banks of a Scottish cemetery. The only suspects in her brutal murder were the four young men who found her: Alex Gilbey and his three best friends. With no evidence but her blood

Twenty five years later, the Cold Case file on Rosie Duff has been reopened. For Alex and his friends, the investigation has also opened old wounds, haunting memories-and new fears. For a stranger has emerged from the shadows with his own ideas about justice. And revenge.
When two of Alex's friends die under suspicious circumstances, Alex knows that he and his innocent family are the next targets. And there's only way to save them: return to the cold-blooded past and uncover the startling truth about the murder. For there lies the identity of an avenging killer...
