The Chatham School Affair Unabridged audiobook in clamshell case, very good condition tho. x-library, Edgar Award winning mystery novel and romance set in New England, young boy's coming of age, 7 cassettes
I got and read this book because it won an Edgar Award for the best mystery of the year. It's not a traditional mystery--it's much more. It's an atmospheric, literature-like story about a town in the 30s where something awful happens and someone dies as a result. The story includes the coming of age of a teenage boy and a lot of excellent, touching insight into life. While I don't normally seek out this kind of reading, I really liked this book. For mystery fans, yes, it does include a nice mystery.
