'Bad Things Happen' by Harry Dolan

Cleveland Park Mystery Book Club March selection

Cover to Bad Things Happen by Harry DolanJoin us to discuss Bad Things Happen on Thursday, March 6, at 6:30 p.m.

Described in the Washington Post as a "droll and delightful first novel...witty, sophisticated, suspenseful and endless fun...."  Harry Dolan's Ann Arbor, Mich., is as murder prone as St. Mary Mead in Miss Marple's day. A man who calls himself David Loogan is leading a quiet, anonymous life hoping to escape a violent past.  Elizabeth Waishkey, the most talented detective in the Ann Arbor Police Department, does not know if Loogan is a killer, or an ally who might help her find the truth.  They find no shortage of people with motives for murder, but as the deaths mount up, Loogan looks more and more like the most promising suspect.

Take a look at Harry Dolan's website.

The Cleveland Park Mystery Book Club meets on the first Thursday of the month, 6:30 p.m., at Barnes & Noble, 12th and E streets NW.
