The Dripping Dagger: A Mystery Book Club

As an experiment for a class I'm planning for fall, I created a discussion forum on Ning called The Dripping Dagger: a Mystery Book Club

Modeled after the Mystery Group I attend each month, it is a one book a month discussion.

The forum is public so anyone can join in the discussion.

The May selection is Nobody Lives Forever by Edna Buchanan. This happens to be the selection for our real world group as well. It came out in 1990 and it is a tough book to find. Consider locating a copy to read to be your own first bit of detection!


  1. Oooh, with a book club name like Dripping Dagger, you have to check out this book for a future read: Her Mother's Diary by David Curry Kahn. It's a suspense and romance novel with a positive attitude.

    It's a good thing it was a Saturday afternoon when I read this because I couldn't stop reading until the end.

    Allison Etcheverry is homeless, estranged from a wealthy family that refuses to acknowledge her, and on the run from drug lords responsible for her parents’ death. But, she has more than her own survival to think about.

    To fulfill her late mother’s last wish, Allison needs to find the money her mother hid before the killers do.

  2. Thanks for the recommendation, Kate!
