Security guards take charge immediately, instructing everyone inside to stay put until the threat is identified and contained.

Each has his or her own reasons for being in the reading room that morning—it just happens that one is a murderer.

There is a scream that shatters the silence in the reading room at the Boston Public Library. A dead body of a woman has been discovered by a cleaning lady. This leads to four strangers, who just happen to be sitting at the same table, to become sleuths and fast friends.
I enjoyed the setting of Boston and the Boston Public library. It is now on the bucket list. The story itself is just ok. I had trouble connecting to the characters. But, I did enjoy the mystery and the convoluted way the author gets you to the killer!
The narrator, Katherine Littrell, did a pretty good job. She needs to work on her southern accent though.
