Keep both eyes open when you walk home this evening, because if the writers in this session are to be believed, Boston’s a hotbed for mystery, mayhem--even murder! In Adam Abramowitz’s A Town Called Malice, a bike messenger and aspiring standup comic gets drawn into an investigation of an attempted hit job at Nick’s Comedy Stop. Edwin Hill’s protagonist is a Harvard librarian with a knack for researching missing people; in his new novel The Missing Ones, a missing persons case strikes close to home. Investigative reporter Hank Phillippi Ryan is a Boston institution, and so are her novels; in her latest standalone, The Murder List, Harvard Law student Rachel is unprepared for her role in researching a homicide case, and even less so for the fact that her boss, the assistant district attorney, may have a vendetta against her. Novelist Kate Racculia might live in Pennsylvania now, but her new novel Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts sends readers on a spirited citywide scavenger hunt to find a dead millionaire’s fortune, in a story that’s a love letter to Boston and to one of Racculia’s favorite novels, The Westing Game. Get ready to explore Boston’s mean streets with these four authors and host Callum Borchers, a reporter for WBUR’s BostonomiX.
