Friday, May 17, 2013 | Other Dates  
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Join us for lively discussions of your favorite mystery novels. Discussions are held in the Teen Quiet Study Room. The current theme is "Mysteries of Pittsburgh."

This month's selection is The Burnt District by Gary Link.

An enormous fire destroys one-third of the city of Pittsburgh in 1845, but stunningly claims only three lives. When City Constable John Parker discovers a fourth body in a building ruined by the blaze most assume that the girl perished in the fire too. But Parker remembers a similar that happened when he was a boy. Is there a serial killer at work in Pittsburgh?
