Better than the prequel

This book is even more enjoyable than its prequel, Booked to Die. The author expertly connects the present and the past in a book that is part mystery, part suspense, and part detective story. The attention to detail regarding booklore is both fascinating and informative. But the best part is the narration. George Guidall is one of my favorites and he does a wonderful job bringing the main character, Cliff Janeway, to life.

Intricate, fast paced, and smart

Dunning's Bookman series is smart and well paced with lots of clever zinger lines, but what makes this series stand out is how each story is propelled by the obsessive fascination and craving for books--particular books, particular authors, particular years, particular perfect dust jackets, particular you-name-it---all the holy grails that make collectors, buyers, and sellers obsessive and sometimes murderous pursuers of completion and perfection. If you like a good, smart mystery you'll enjoy this very well narrated book; if you're a book lover you'll love it.
