February Book Selection: The Third Nero by Lindsey Davis
About the Book:
This historical novel, the fifth in the Flavia Albia series, is set in Ancient Rome, September AD 89. Rome is in turmoil. Emperor Domitian is on the throne and becoming more and more paranoid. Rumors abound that the prior emperor Nero, who was thought murdered is alive and well and seeking to reclaim his throne. Two false Neros have already been discovered, and now there is a third person claiming to be the emperor. Flavia has recently been married, her new husband was injured on their wedding day, and is bedridden. She needs the money and agrees to check into the validity of the third False Nero.
Discussion led by Gloria Sampson Knight.

About the SCNY Mystery Book Club:
Since 2013 the SCNY Book Club has met monthly with the exception of June and July. The books discussed are primarily mystery novels. Some memorable authors explored have included Agatha Christie, Lee Child, Louise Penny and Ruth Rendell. Books are selected based on geographic or historical interest, such as works by author Donna Leon whose crime novels are set in Venice, Italy and Peter Tremayne, Celtic scholar and historian whose focus is Seventh Century Ireland. We have had new authors discuss their writings including Paul Paradise, who writes about murder, trademark counterfeiting, and product piracy and Radha Vatsal, award winning mystery writer whose books center around a young female reporter in New York City during the 1910’s. All books selected are readily accessible through the public library, and when not, can be purchased for a nominal fee. This is in alliance with the SCNY 50l (c) (3) Not for Profit organization status, as providing free arts programs for the general public.
The SCNY Mystery Book Club is open to SCNY members and the general public.
SCNY Mystery Book Club Discussions coming soon: March 26, April 24, May 29
