We are so excited to begin our monthly SHQ Book Club! May’s book is Julie’s favorite from 2017, Case Of the Missing Men. Pick it up starting now (both in store and online). Come by on Sunday, May 27th 5-7pm to chat with other Book Clubbers (and enjoy drinks and snacks!)
Nancy Drew meets David Lynch in this mystery thriller set in a remote and eerie east-coast village. The story follows a gang of young teens who have made it their business to investigate each and every one of their town’s bizarre occurrences as The Teen Detective Club (a registered afterschool program). Their small world of missing pets and shed-fires is turned upside down when real-life kid adventurer and globetrotter Sam Finch comes to town and enlists them in their first real case—the search for his missing father. In doing so, he and the teens stumble upon a terrifying world of rural secret societies, weird-but-true folk mythology, subterranean lairs, and an occultist who can turn men into dogs. The Case of The Missing Men is at turns funny, intriguing, eerie and endearing, and is beautifully illustrated in a style reminiscent of children’s pulp classics like Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys.
