In late January, Roz Shea reviewed WHO KILLED PIET BAROL? by Richard Mason for She loved the book so much that she wanted to discuss it with her book group. We made a special arrangement for the publisher to send her group enough copies of the book for their discussion. The catch was that she lives in Arizona, and many of her book group members are snowbirds; as she says, “They flee the desert by mid-May.” Thus she wanted to send them away with the book in hand so this discussion could be the first of the fall season. They indeed discussed the book at their first meeting of the season, and we asked Roz some questions about it.
