Mystery Book Club: Read "Mrs. Mohr Goes Missing" *For Adults
Wednesday, May 11, 2022
Mystery and Thriller readers, this is for you! Please join us, in person, for our Mystery Book Club where we discuss "Mrs. Mohr Goes Missing" by Maryla Szymiczkowa.
"An ingenious marriage of comedy and crime." --Olga Tokarczuk, Nobel laureate and author of Man Booker International Prize winner Flights A charming, witty, and deliciously spooky mystery, inspired by the work of Agatha Christie, following a bored socialite who becomes Cracow's most cunning amateur sleuth. Cracow, 1893. Zofia Turbotynska--professor's wife and socialite--is bored at home, with little to do but plan a charity auction sponsored by the wealthy residents of a local nursing home and the nuns who work there. But when one of those residents is found dead, Zofia finds a calling: solving crimes. Ridiculed by the police, who have declared the deaths of natural cause, she starts her own murder investigation, unbeknownst to anyone but her loyal cook Franciszka and one reluctant nun. With her husband blissfully unaware of her secret, Zofia remakes herself into Cracow's greatest--or at the very least, most surprising--amateur detective. Full of period character and charm, Mrs. Mohr Goes Missing proves that everyone is capable of finding their passion in life, however unlikely it may seem.
We'll have some copies of the book at the library or you can order it from our online catalog.
