WhoDunnits Book Discussion: Brat Farrar

In this tale of mystery and suspense, a stranger enters the inner sanctum of the Ashby family posing as Patrick Ashby, the heir to the family's sizable fortune. The stranger, Brat Farrar, has been carefully coached on Patrick's mannerism's, appearance, and every significant detail of Patrick's early life, up to his thirteenth year when he disappeared and was thought to have drowned himself. It seems as if Brat is going to pull off this most incredible deception until old secrets emerge that jeopardize the imposter's plan and his life.

WhoDunnits is a discussion group devoted to mysteries and following a yearlong program of books and movies around a single topic. We'll have featured titles some months, and do themes with title suggestions other months. We'll also hold occasional movie showings. This year we're taking a look at the Golden Age of Mysteries, the period between the wars that saw an explosion of cozy British country house murders, dark detection by damaged detectives, and noble amateurs whimsically solving crimes. This era produced mystery legends like Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, Dashiell Hammett, Ngaio Marsh -- and even influenced writers working today.
