Established in 2006 as an added advantage for Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) members and enthusiasts, the Ohioana Book Club meets at the Ohioana Library Association in the State Library of Ohio, located at: 274 East First Avenue, Suite 300, Columbus, OH 43201
Members of the
LLI Steering Committee serve as facilitators and liaisons, and they are pleased to announce the following selection for reading and discussion:
The job seems simple enough: Reporter Lee Hershey needs protection for a couple of weeks as he pursues the biggest story of his career with all eyes on swing state Ohio in the midst of a presidential election. Columbus private eye Andy Hayes, broke as usual, doesn’t have much choice but to sign on, even with his girlfriend falling for the charming journalist.
Then murder strikes at the Statehouse and Andy finds himself partly responsible for the death. With an innocent man behind bars, a mysterious vehicle following Andy around the city, and more lives in danger, the detective has his hands full trying to solve a killing in a poisonous political environment where everyone has a motive for murder and anyone could be the next target.
