Homicide in HardcoverBook - 2009
"A new chapter begins . . . . Brooklyn Wainwright is a skilled surgeon. Sure, her patients might smell like mold and have spines made of leather, but no ailing book is going to die on her watch. The same can't be said of Abraham Karastovsky, Brooklyn's friend and former employer. On the eve of a celebration for his latest book restoration, Brooklyn finds her mentor lying in a pool of his own blood. With his final breath, Abraham leaves Brooklyn a cryptic message, 'Remember the devil,' and smiles as she takes possession of his priceless - and supposedly cursed - copy of Goethe's Faust . Brooklyn suddenly finds herself accused of murder and theft, thanks to Derek Stone, the humourless - and annoyingly attractive - British security officer who found her kneeling over the body. Now she has to make sense of the clues left behind by her mentor if she hopes to restore justice . . . First in the new Bibliophile Mystery Series!"
