Small towns have always hidden big secrets. After getting a note demanding his presence, Australian federal agent Aaron Falk arrives in his hometown for the first time in decades to attend the funeral of his best friend, Luke. Twenty years ago when Falk was accused of murder, Luke was his alibi. Amid the worst drought in a century, Falk and a local detective question what really happened to Luke. As Falk reluctantly investigates to see if there’s more to Luke’s death than there seems to be, long-buried mysteries resurface, and long-standing lies come under scrutiny.

Fayette on the Page - One Book, One Community 2018 Selection
PLEASE NOTE: This month’s meeting is scheduled for the 4th Thursday!

The story of Victor Frankenstein’s terrible creation and the havoc it caused has enthralled generations of readers and inspired countless writers of horror and suspense. Published in 1818, Frankenstein turns 200 this year, and we join readers around the world in celebrating this groundbreaking and immortal work of literature.
The Lady and Her Monsters
by Roseanne Montillo
With true-life tales of grave robbers, ghoulish experiments, and the ultimate in macabre research, this nonfiction account brings to life the fascinating times, startling science, and real-life horrors behind Mary Shelley’s gothic masterpiece, “Frankenstein.” At the intersection of the Romantic Age and the Industrial Revolution, Shelley’s Victor Frankenstein was inspired by actual scientists of the period: curious and daring iconoclasts who were obsessed with the inner workings of the human body and how it might be reanimated after death.
