Crime Reads Book Club: Die Around Sundown by Mark Pryor

May 25 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Crime Reads Book Club will be discussing Die Around Sundown by Mark Pryor. This club is open to all community members, no library card requirement!

Mark Pryor’s Die Around Sundown is the first entry in an exciting mystery series set in Paris during World War II, where a detective is forced to solve a murder while protecting his own secrets.

Summer 1940: In German-occupied Paris, Inspector Henri Lefort has been given just five days to solve the murder of a German major that took place in the Louvre Museum. Blocked from the crime scene but given a list of suspects, Henri encounters a group of artists, including Pablo Picasso, who know more than they’re willing to share.

With the clock ticking, Henri must uncover a web of lies while overcoming impossible odds to save his own life and prove his loyalty to his country. Will he rise to the task or become another tragic story of a tragic time?

Five days. One murder. A masterpiece of a mystery.

Mark Pryor is a former newspaper reporter from England. He moved to the US in 1995 and subsequently spent 16 years working as a prosecutor with the Travis County District Attorney’s Office, in Austin, Texas. He is now a partner at the law firm of Cofer & Connelly, in Austin.

His book DIE AROUND SUNDOWN is the first in a new series of historical mysteries set in Paris during WW2 – published August 16, 2022, by St. Martin’s/Minotaur.
