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.
To Jack Kisling of Hairline Press, who navigates with a steady hand the eddies and shoals of the printshop.
Slater wasn't my kind of cop.
The young endure and hope, until suddenly they're forty and time isn't what it once was. The old suffer and save their hopes for the real things in life --- a high, dry present and a quiet place to die.
In the yard behind the store I look at the black sky and wonder what books tomorrow will bring.
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.
