John Dunning takes you into the world of rare books with a compelling story. I couldn't put it down and had to read all four in the series quickly and in successionl.
Be sure and read the intro on how this first in the series became a best seller,

The more I read, the more I enjoyed this novel. I especially liked the theme of the bookscout, being a book lover myself. I like the detective Janeway and look forward to more offerings by this author.

I don't know why its taken me so long to discover this author. "Booked To Die" introduces is to Denver homicide detective Cliff Janeaway. A recent homicide involving a bookscout has him trying to find the answers as to why this man is now dead.

Whats great about this book is that the people in the books are book lovers themselves, trying to find rare books that they can sell. Janeaway, himself is a book lover, which makes things even more interesting.

As the investigation progresses things in Janeway's life change a bit, but I won't divulge that. The investigation gives us several plausible suspects, which had me guessing til the very end.

I definitely will keep reading this series and recommend it anyone looking to begin a new series themselves.
