Join Mill Creek Noir book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

When 11-year-old Polly McClusky's fresh-out-of-jail father shows up at her school in a stolen car, he takes her into a world of crime and violence. He does it to save her life. Nate made enemies in prison and a bounty has been put on his head. His ex-wife, Polly's mother, is already dead. His daughter is next on their list. She Rides Shotgun is a propulsive, gritty novel that upends expectations about heroes, villains, and victims. Nate takes Polly to save her life, but in the end it may very well be Polly who saves him.

Booker Prize-winning author Julian Barnes probes the nature of love and how we really experience it, remember it, write about it, and lie about it in The Only Story. "Memory is my guide here," Casey Paul tells us, as he goes back to age 19 and the summer he joined his parents' tennis club. There he meets Mrs. Susan Macleod, a fascinating married woman twice his age who becomes his tennis partner. Together they unleash a hornet's nest of gossip and outrage as they embark on what will be the greatest love of Casey Paul's life.
