Our book for August is Cop Town by Karin Slaughter. “Atlanta, 1974. It’s Kate Murphy’s first day on the job and the Atlanta Police Department is seething after the murder of an officer. Before the day has barely begun, she already suspects she’s not cut out for the job as a cop. Her male uniform is too big, she can’t handle a gun, and she’s rapidly learning that the APD is hardly a place that welcomes women. Worse still, in the ensuing manhunt, she’ll be partnered with Maggie Lawson, a cop with her own ax to grind (and a brother and uncle already on the force)–a strategy meant to isolate Kate and Maggie from the action. But the move will backfire, putting them right at the heart of it”

Our book for October is A Murder of Magpies by Judith Flanders. A witty, entertaining mystery featuring a hilarious, sharp as a tack new amateur sleuth, book editor Samantha Clair. A police inspector turns up at the offices asking questions about an undelivered package that was addressed to Sam. The messenger sent to deliver the package was murdered, and then an author goes missing. Suddenly, Sam’s nine-to-five life is turned upside down and she is propelled into a criminal investigation.
