NOA Meeting "The Club Dumas"

This meeting's book is The Club Dumas by Arturo Perez-Reverte.  


We will be meeting at Poor Richard's to celebrate the upcoming holidays and year end.  We will also announce this at the November meeting.  For this meeting, please make sure to keep your RSVP up-to-date so I have a good overall count for the meeting to give to Poor Richard's.


Overview from B&N website:

Lucas Corso, middle-aged, tired, and cynical, is a book detective, a mercenary hired to hunt down rare editions for wealthy and unscrupulous clients. When a well-known bibliophile is found hanged, leaving behind part of the original manuscript of Alexandre Dumas's The Three Musketeers, Corso is brought in to authenticate the fragment. The task seems straightforward, but the unsuspecting Corso is soon drawn into a swirling plot involving devil worship, occult practices, and swashbuckling derring-do among a cast of characters bearing a suspicious resemblance to those of Dumas's masterpiece. Aided by a mysterious beauty named for a Conan Doyle heroine, Corso travels from Madrid to Toledo to Paris in pursuit of a sinister and seemingly omniscient killer.

    My new hero agreed to meet with me and share some secrets on how she does her photo magic. This is the only night she was free. I'm still coming, but will be a few hours late. Maybe we can catch some karaoke afterwards again.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
