The Mysterious Readers Book Group will discuss Crypt Thief by Mark Pryor (Seventh Street Books, $15.95). It’s summer in Paris and two tourists have been murdered in Pere Lachaise cemetery. The cemetery is locked down and put under surveillance, but the killer returnsand breaks into the crypt of a long-dead Moulin Rouge dancer. In a bizarre twist, he disappears under the cover of night with part of her skeleton. One of the dead tourists is an American and the other is a woman linked to a suspected terrorist; so the US ambassador sends the embassy s head of security Hugo Marston to help the French police with their investigation. When the thief breaks into another crypt at a different cemetery, stealing bones from a second famed dancer, Hugo is stumped. How does this killer operate unseen? And why is he stealing the bones of once-famous can-can girls?  Hugo cracks the secrets of the graveyards but soon realizes that old bones aren’t all this killer wants.
