THE BOOKMAN'S WAKE - John Dunning
The second outing for retired Denver detective now book dealer Cliff Janaway.
He is looking for a girl believed to be in posession of a rare book by Edgar Alan Poe. This leads to a tale of obession and madness with a few murders thrown in
Again we have an excellent mystery coupled with trivia regarding the rare and used book trade which I find fascinating. The author is a book dealer so they information supplied is first rate.
The books are unavailable in New Zealand but there are plenty out of the USA, thank goodness. (Published 1995)
