The next “Who Done It” Dinner and Movie features the film, “Laura” at 6 p.m. on Monday, September 29. Detective Mark McPherson investigates the killing of Laura and builds a mental picture of the dead girl from the suspects whom he interviews. He is helped by the striking painting of the late lamented Laura hanging on her apartment wall. But, who would have wanted to kill a girl with whom every man she met seemed to fall in love? To make matters worse, McPherson finds himself falling under her spell too. Then one night, halfway through his investigations, something seriously bizarre happens to make him re-think the whole case. Deane Tucker, Professor of Humanities at Chadron State College will facilitate the discussion which will include a light meal and participants from WWC will join the discussion via Skype. The film is 88 minutes.
A new suspense novel is “The Forsaken” by Ace Atkins. Thirty-seven years ago, 2 teenage girls were held by a stranger, sexually assaulted, shot, and left for dead – but one survived. Now in her 50’s, Diane Tull lives with the guilt of surviving – and the guilt for the horrific lynching of a nameless black man who was buried in an unmarked grave. She turns to Sheriff Quinn Colson and Chief Deputy Lillie Virgil to find the truth, but as they start to uncover old lies and secrets, they find themselves accused of terrible crimes. The worst part is the accusations just might stick.
