The FOLIO-sponsored Adult Book Discussion program series “Murder They Wrote” will continue on Saturday, April 13th at 2pm with fiction title “Destroyer Angel” by Nevada Barr.

Anna Pigeon, a ranger for the U.S. Park Services, sets off on vacation―an autumn canoe trip in the to the Iron Range in upstate Minnesota. With Anna is her friend Heath, a paraplegic; Heath’s fifteen-year-old daughter, Elizabeth; Leah, a wealthy designer of outdoor equipment; and her daughter, Katie, who is thirteen. For Heath and Leah, this is a shakedown cruise to test a new cutting edge line of camping equipment. The equipment, designed by Leah, will make camping and canoeing more accessible to disabled outdoorsmen.

On their second night out, Anna goes off on her own for a solo evening float on the Fox River. When she comes back, she finds that four thugs, armed with rifles, pistols, and knives, have taken the two women and their teenaged daughters captive. With limited resources and no access to the outside world, Anna has only two days to rescue them in Destroyer Angel, the New York Times bestseller by Nevada Barr.

Coming in May: Nonfiction title The Feathered Thief: Beauty, Obsession, and the Natural History Heist of the Century by Kirk Wallace Johnson.

Coming in July: Nonfiction Title The Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule.
