| First Pegasus Books hardcover edition
Inversgail. When Janet Marsh discovers the body of Dr. Malcolm Murray, it appears to have been an accident. A few days later a box of vintage first editions is left on the doorstep of Yon Bonnie Books with a note: "Please look after these books. Thank you." What exactly does "look after" mean? Are Janet and the crew free to sell them? And what are the odd notes penciled in the margins? They discover the books might have belonged to Malcolm Murray or his reclusive brother, Gerald. At Malcolm's house they find evidence of a burglary; at Gerald's house they find the door ajar--and Gerald stabbed with a regimental dagger.
