Join the North Providence Mystery Book Club on Tuesday November 1, 2016. We will be discussing Judgment Calls by Alafair Burke. This is the first book featuring Portland, Oregon Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid. Alafair Burke is the daughter of writer James Lee Burke.
The book description from the author’s website is:” Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid walks into her office in Portland’s Drug and Vice Division one Monday morning to find the sergeant of the police bureau’s vice unit waiting for her. A thirteen-year-old girl has been brutally attacked and left for dead on the city’s outskirts. Given the lack of evidence, most lawyers would settle for an assault charge; Samantha, unnerved by the viciousness of the crime, decides to go for attempted murder. But as she prepares for the trial, she uncovers a dangerous trail leading to a high-profile death penalty case, a prostitution ring of underage girls, and a possible serial killer. And she finds her judgment — not only in matters of the law but in her personal life — called into question.”
We will be meeting at 7:00 pm in the Library’s Second Floor Meeting Room.
