one book, one la poster
Maureen Jennings is renowned author of historical mysteries. She is best known as the author of the Detective Murdoch series, which has been turned into the long running CBC television series, Murdoch Mysteries.

Season of Darkness is the first book in Jennings’ Tom Tyler series. During the darkest days of WWII, young women from all walks of life have joined the Land Army to help desperate farmers keep the country fed. When one girl is found murdered on a desolate country road, Detective Tom Tyler is almost glad for the distraction from other troubles. His rural posting is dull. A lover has reappeared and turned his emotions upside down. His soldier son seems utterly changed by Dunkirk and his daughter is an unhappy 16. When another girl disappears, his investigation is further complicated and tensions are about to reach an all-time high in this small, English town.

    This would be wonderful to attend except for the fact that I have no idea where to go. It would have been nice, at least, to have an address to look up.
