Cleveland Park Mystery Book Club: June 1 selection

"Celine" by Peter Heller

In Celine, Peter Heller creates one of the most unusual characters in mystery writing in recent years. A 68-year-old eccentric member of the WASP elite, P. I. Celine investigates the decades-old disappearance of a National Geographic photographer in Yellowstone National Park. Reading more like general fiction than focused mystery genre, the wide range of writing veers across the protagonist's own background and family relationships, East Coast and Western settings, socio-cultural history, and political intrigue.  Sometimes frustrating because of the lack of focus, Celine results in a character we want to revisit in future books. The book is available in hard copy and e-formats at the library. 

The Cleveland Park Mystery Book Club meets at 6:30 p.m. the first Thursday of each month (except December) at Teaism, 400 8th Street, NW, downstairs  (Archive/Navy Memorial Metro).
