"[Israel's] fish-out-of-water dilemmas and encounters with kooky locals will resonate with Alexander McCall Smith fans." -- Publishers Weekly Author Ian Sansom "clearly loves a good laugh" ( Washington Post ), as his delightful mystery series featuring rumpled, fish-out-of-water, Jewish vegetarian librarian Israel Armstrong indisputably proves. The Bad Book Affair is Israel's fourth hilarious adventure as he tools aroundIrelandin a rattletrap bookmobile trying to solve the mystery of a missing teenage girl while trying to keep his mess of a personal life in order. Sansom's Mobile Library Mystery series has made a big splash with critics on both sides of "the Pond." The New York Times Book Review loves their "formidable reserves of insight and humor," while the London Times calls Israel" one of the most original and exciting amateur sleuths around."
