If you are looking for something to do during the Fall and Winter in Door County, and you like to read, then the Great Lakes/Great Books Club is something to check out. Coordinated by the Door County Maritime Museum and Write On, Door County, this book club picks a new work each month that focuses on Great Lakes topics or has the Great Lakes as the backdrop to their story.
The next meeting on November 1, 10:30 am – 12 pm, discusses the work Death Rides the Ferry by Patricia Skalka. This is another work in the Dave Cubiak Door County mystery series. Other books in the series include Death Stalks Door County, Death at Gills Rock, and Death in Cold Water.
The story follows Cubiak on a rare day-off. The Viola da Gamba Music Festival is returning to Washington Island after a forty-year absence, everyone is enjoying the day. That all comes to an end when an unidentified passenger is found dead on the ferry. Cubiak now has to follow the trail of the murderer in order to solve the crime in the stormy northern reaches of Lake Michigan.
