MacKay Mystery Book Group Online
This month we will be discussing the book, Murder in Chianti by Camilla Trinchieri
"Set in the heart of Tuscan wine country, Camilla Trinchieri's new mystery introduces Nico Doyle, a former NYPD homicide detective who's just looking for space to grieve when he finds himself pulled into a local muder investigation. Mourning the loss of his wife, Rita, former NYPD homicide detective Nico Doyle moves to her hometown of Gravigna in the wine-soaked region of Chianti. Half-Italian and half-Irish, Nico finds himself able to get by in the region with the help of Rita's relatives, but he still feels alone and out of place. He isn't sure if it's peace he's seeking, but it isn't what he finds. Early one morning, he hears a gunshot near his cabin and walks out to discover a dead body in the woods, flashily dressed in gold tennis shoes. A small white dog at the scene won't leave Nico alone, so he lies to the police and claims to be its owner. Salvatore Perillo, the local maresciallo, enlists Nico's help with the murder case. It turns out more than one person in this idyllic corner of Italy knew the victim, and with a very small pool of suspects, including his own in-laws, Nico must dig up Gravigna's every last painful secret to get to the truth."
The Mystery Book Group meets at 2:00 PM on the fourth Wednesday of every month. We read a wide variety of titles, from the classics to historical mysteries to contemporary thrillers. Currently the group is fashioned on our hybrid model – members can attend in person at the main branch of the library or attend via zoom. We always enjoy welcoming new readers with different perspectives to the group. For more information, please contact Jill Kenny at firstname.lastname@example.org
