“Human minds are more full of mysteries than any written book and more changeable than the cloud shapes in the air.”— Louisa May Alcott
What makes a gripping mystery? A spooky setting? A dastardly plot? A narrator whose mind makes them less than reliable? The perfect mystery novel reveals some clues to the reader, a peek at the author’s cards without giving the whole story away. Our latest read, written by a Darien resident, unfolds on a private island in upstate New York where a family woke up to mind a mattress soaked in blood.
