Program Description

Event Details

Come join us for a trip to the coast of New England, on old Cape Cod of the 1930s. A troupe of actors find themselves stranded and are given refuge for the night in the remote cottage rented by Victoria Ballard. In the morning the lead magician of the group is found shot dead. Asey Mayo is nearby, visiting his cousin Syl. Asey, a former fisherman and race car driver is locally known as the "Codfish Sherlock". Together with Victoria he tackles the mystery.

A classic American mystery seasoned with gentle humor and the regional color of coastal New England.

Mystery Book Group
