    Fast Company by Marco Page (benjclark)
    benjclark: If you like John Dunning, allow me to reccomend Marco Page's Fast Company. Out of print, but that shouldn't stop you. It's in a similar vein to Dunning's Bookman series, but set in 1938. Well, it was written in 1938.

# 2 in the Cliff Janeway Mystery Series ... and I am completely hooked! Will definitely keep reading this series. ( )
  BookConcierge | Feb 13, 2016 |
2 /12 stars. ok the mystery was very cool. how it was all twisty and the surprise killer. i skimmed it thought because the detailed chapters on how gresyon made books and his art or whatever lost me. i mean the first 2 section about gresyon press and the brothers was cool then another came along and i was like forget it. so hopefully the third book in the series is not so detailed in things like that. i like learning about the book trade and book scouting and the printing process but it was too much exposition for me.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0671567829, Mass Market Paperback)

The sequel to the popular Booked to Die. Cliff Janeway, Denver cop-turned-book-dealer, finds himself chasing down a charming young fugitive named Eleanor Rigby, who has stolen a rare copy of Poe's "The Raven" for reasons of her own. Trouble follows, and Eleanor disappears into a city filled with people who want the book, and don't care what they have to do to get it. Stuffed with fascinating book lore, this mystery is a bibliophile's dream.
