Murder in the Afternoon Book Club to Discuss: Night Life by David C. Taylor
- Post by Crime Fiction Coordinator Scott Montgomery
For October, our Murder In the Afternoon book club goes back to the not so fabulous Fifties with the Edgar nominated Night Life. It it the first in the Michael Cassidy series. We’re happy to announce the author, David C. Taylor, will be calling into the discussion.
Michael Cassidy works as a police detective n New York, even though he has a well off background. His father made himself a Broadway mogul and his brother works for the fledgling broadcaster ABC. When Michael catches the murder of a chorus boy, the investigation leads him through a red scare world of the mob, FBI, CIA, and Russian agents with appearances by the likes of Roy Cohn and gangster Frank Costello.
Night Life‘s hero, place and period gives us a lot to talk about and Mr. Taylor knows the period well. We will be meeting on BookPeople’s third floor at 1PM, Monday, October 17th. Copies of Night Life are 10% off in-store for those who attend.
You can find copies of Night Life on our shelves and via bookpeople.com. The Murder in the Afternoon Book Club meets the third Monday of each month at 1 PM. Our upcoming meeting to discuss Night Life is next Monday, October 17th, at 1 PM on Bookpeople’s 3rd floor. Author David C. Taylor will be calling in to the discussion.
