The fifteen short mystery and crime stories in this compendium will keep the reader turning the pages. All the stories are engaging ... perhaps because they involve books and bookstores. When may we expect the sequel?

"... All I know is that, at some point, a character [in a novel] becomes sufficiently famous to pop into existence and when they do so, they materialize in or near the Caxton Private Lending Library & Book Depository. They always have since the original Mr. Caxton set up the first depository ... in 1492 ... he did so when some of Chaucer's pilgrims turned up on his doorstep in 1477. ... Once he became convinced that they were not actors or lunatics, he realized that he had to find somewhere to keep them. He didn't want to be accused of sorcery ...and he had his enemies: where there are books, there will always be haters of books alongside the lovers of them." (p. 447)
