Riveting mystery concerning the search for a missing collection of rare books. Includes fascinating information about explorer Richard Burton and his involvement in the Civil War.
I love this series. Mixed in with the mysteries is a good deal of inside info on book trading but, it isn't presented in a dry text book kind of way.
An excellent read, with a well developed plot. Cliff Janeway is a former cop turned bookseller. His purchase of a rare signed first edition leads to a search for an unpublished journal and an entire library of equally rare volumes. But the search turns violent as it becomes clear that someone else doesn't want them found...
The 3rd Cliff Janeway book. I think these books just keep on getting better. If you are new to this series, start with the 1st one, Booked To Die! If tightly woven, well-developed crime novels are one of your genres, give this series a try!
A perfect book for those who love books! Cliff Janeway is an intelligent ex-cop who solves "book" mysteries. You'll learn a lot about the book collecting trade as well.
