Discussion of Midnight in Peking:  How the Murder of a Young Englishwoman Haunted the Last Days of Old China, by Paul French.  Chronicling an incredible unsolved murder, Midnight in Peking captures the aftermath of the brutal killing of a British schoolgirl in January 1937. The mutilated body of Pamela Werner was found at the base of the Fox Tower, which, according to local superstition, is home to the maliciously seductive fox spirits. As British detective Dennis and Chinese detective Han investigate, the mystery only deepens and, in a city on the verge of invasion, rumor and superstition run rampant. Based on seven years of research by historian and China expert Paul French, this true-crime thriller presents readers with a rare and unique portrait of the last days of colonial Peking.  Winner of both the Edgar Award for Best Fact Crime and the CWA Non-Fiction Dagger.

This discussion will take place upstairs in the library.
