A rousing literary mystery, translated from the Spanish, in which "book detective" Lucas Corso is drawn into a fantastical plot involving the murder of a noted bibliophile, the original manuscript of "The Three Musketeers," occult practices, and swashbuckling. It gets a little too tangled by the end, but it's an enjoyable ride most of the way. (And the last line is priceless.)

Thrilling intelligent mystery. Find some time to read this one -- not a quick read, but a really satisfying one.

A truly exciting, page-turning mystery with interesting characters and a romance that doesn't overshadow the main plot.
