Join the North Providence Mystery Book Club on Tuesday December 2, 2014 at 7:00 pm as we discuss, A Perfect Evil by Alex Kava. This is the first book in the Maggie O'Dell series. Maggie is an FBI profiler. From the author's website: "The brutal murders of three young boys paralyze the citizens of Platte City, Nebraska. What's worse is the grim realization that the man recently execute for the crimes was a copycat. When Sheriff Nick Morelli is called to the scene of another grisly murder, it becomes clear that the real predator is still at large, waiting to kill again. Morelli understands the urgency of the case terrorizing his community, but it's the experienced eye of FBI criminal profiler Maggie O'Dell that pinpoints the true nature of the evil behind the killings -- a revelation made all the more horrific when Morelli's own nephew goes missing. Maggie understands something else: the killer is enjoying himself, relishing his ability to stay one step ahead of her, making this case more personal by the hour. But out there, watching is a killer with a heart of pure and perfect evil."

The publisher's summary is: "After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He also has just broken up with his longtime girlfriend and is living in his office. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: His sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, know to her friends at the Cuckoo, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man. You may think you know detectives, but you've never met one quite like Strike. You may think you know about the wealthy and famous, but you've never seen them under an investigation like this. Introducing Cormoran Strike, this is the acclaimed first crime novel by J.K. Rowling, writing under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith."

The summary from the large print edition is: "In 1890s San Fransico, former Pinkerton operative Sabrina Carpenter and her detective partner, ex-Secret Service agent John Quincannon, undertake what appear to be two unrelated investigations. While Sabrina hunts for a ruthless lady pickpocket, Quincannon is after a slippery housebreaker who targets wealthy homes. The cases connect in a surprising fashion, not before two murders and other assorted felonies complicate matters. And not before the two sleuths are hindered, assisted, and exasperated by the bughouse Sherlock Holmes."
