One Book • One Island

One Book One Island

"In the cold Toronto winter of 1895, the body of a young woman is found naked and frozen in a quite laneway. Acting Detective William Murdoch, driven by pity for the girl and a desire to secure his promotion, is determined to pursue every lead and reveal the truth."

The One Book • One Island selection for 2015 is Except the Dying by Maureen Jennings. The first in the Murdoch Mysteries series, these Canadian murder-mysteries have been adapted into a long-running television drama.

Maureen will host three public presentations about her work at the Confederation Centre, Montague Rotary, and Summerside Rotary libraries. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter or see the library's events page for all the details on these and other One Book • One Island programmes.
