Publisher's Summary

Murder is always a bestseller… first in the new bibliophile mystery series!
The streets of San Francisco would be lined with hardcovers if rare book expert Brooklyn Wainwright had her way. And her mentor wouldn't be lying in a pool of his own blood on the eve of a celebration for his latest book restoration. With his final breath he leaves Brooklyn a cryptic message, and gives her a priceless - and supposedly cursed - copy of Goethe's Faust for safekeeping. Brooklyn suddenly finds herself accused of murder and theft, thanks to the humorless - but attractive - British security officer who finds her kneeling over the body. Now she has to read the clues left behind by her mentor if she is going to restore justice.

Not Great

I downloaded this book because I wanted a nice cozy mystery. I should have followed the reviews and not gotten the book. The premise could have been good, but I found it very slow and boring. The narrator's "British" accent started out sounding Scottish and then wavered back and forth. Between the distracting narration and the slow story, I probably won't even finish the book. It's not even keeping my interest enough for me to care whodunit.
