Crime Club September

Join us on September 12 at 7 PM as we discuss The Old Man by Thomas Perry.

About the Book

A finalist for the Barry Award for Best Thriller

Edgar Award-winning author Thomas Perry writes thrillers that move "almost faster than a speeding bullet" (Wall Street Journal). The Old Man is his latest whip-smart standalone novel.

To all appearances, Dan Chase is a harmless retiree in Vermont with two big mutts and a grown daughter he keeps in touch with by phone. But most sixty-year-old widowers don't have multiple driver's licenses, savings stockpiled in banks across the country, and a bugout kit with two Beretta Nanos stashed in the spare bedroom closet. Most have not spent decades on the run. Thirty-five years ago, as a young hotshot in army intelligence, Chase was sent to Libya to covertly assist a rebel army. When the plan turned sour, Chase reacted according to his own ideas of right and wrong, triggering consequences he could never have anticipated. And someone still wants him dead because of them. Just as he had begun to think himself finally safe, Chase must reawaken his survival instincts to contend with the history he has spent his adult life trying to escape. Armed mercenaries, spectacularly crashed cars, a precarious love interest, and an unforgettable chase scene through the snow--this is lethal plotting from one of the best in crime fiction.

About the Crime Club

The Crime Club reads one paperback mystery a month and its discussions are led by Joanne Picard. We typically meets the second Monday of each month at 7 p.m. It's free and everyone is welcome to join. We talk about the characters, the plot, the setting, and the language. We reveal why we liked the book or why we didn't. Sometimes we agree and sometimes we don't. Mostly we have a good time talking crime.
