The Mystery Book Club will be exploring a real-life mystery with “Conan Doyle for the Defense: The True Story of a Sensational British Murder, a Quest for Justice & the World’s Most Famous Detective Writer” by Margalit Fox. In 1908, Marion Gilchrist was murdered in her home. The police focused on a expat, Oscar Slater. He was easily convicted. Slater’s attorneys reached out to Doyle & he set about demonstrating the skills that he gave to his fictional detective. Join the book club on 3/20 at 10:30 am to share your thoughts on this interesting case.
