C is for Corpse
by Sue Grafton
Thursday, August 17
How do you go about solving an attempted murder when the victim has lost a good part of his memory? It’s one of Kinsey Millhone’s toughest cases yet, but she never backs down from a challenge. Bobby Callahan is lucky to be alive after a car forced his Porsche over a bridge and into a canyon. The crash left Bobby with a clouded memory but he can’t shake the feeling it was no random accident. Any chances of Bobby regaining his memory are dashed when he’s killed in another automobile accident. As Kinsey digs deeper into her investigation, she discovers Bobby had a secret worth killing for–and unearthing that secret could send Kinsey to her own early death…
Third in Grafton’s dashing trip through the alphabet (A is for Alibi, etc.) and probably her best so far. The author’s style is warm and swift, the plot intrigues even if far-fetched; best of all is Kinsey Millhone—who’s got brains and a sense of humor.
On Wednesday, August 9, come to to library at 7:30 pm to hear creative and compelling music from husband-and-wife duo Mark and Cindy Lemaire. Known for his unique guitar style, Mark incorporates masterful fingerpicking, slap-and-tap harmonics, hand percussion, and a delicate, heartfelt touch. While Mark’s solo guitar pieces stand as complete statements, his harmonies with Cindy Lemaire are so perfectly matched that it sometimes seems they have one voice. With four albums released and some captivating songs you’ll only hear live, Mark and Cindy leave audiences grinning and fulfilled. Suggested donation.
