McAuliffe Branch Book Discussion: The Lightkeepers

The Lightkeepers by Abby Geni
Miranda is a writer who travels to the exotic and dangerous Farallon Islands for a residency documenting fish, sharks and birds that sometimes attack. But, the wildlife aren’t the only dangers. Called an “old-fashioned thriller,” by the New York Times Book Review, this is a tense, fast-paced, atmospheric mystery.
