The bodies are piling up in Episode 30 of the Hope Book Club!
Katrina Roe and Natasha Moore from the Centre for Public Christianity review three compelling murder mysteries, with special guest reviewer Katrina Clifford, Dean of Academics from Robert Menzies College.
The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman is a funny murder mystery set in a retirement village in England. The investigators may all be septuagenarians, but they use their age to their advantage with surprising results.
Magic for Liars by Sarah Gailey is a murder mystery set in a magic school. Ivy is a non-magical private detective, who has a complicated relationship with her privileged, magical sister.
The Survivors by Jane Harper is a realistic murder mystery set in a small coastal town in Tasmania. When the body of a young backpacker is found on the beach, it brings back memories of another young girl who went missing many years ago. For Keiran, who lost his brother in a terrible storm 12 years earlier, the past is very much alive.
And our reviewers brainstorm the most compelling and inventive settings to stage a murder mystery.
