- In stock
Helen Cox returns with a second installment of The Kitt Hartley Yorkshire Mysteries– a delicious, gripping story set in the surprisingly shadowy world of the Yorkshire bookseller community. After a mysterious burglary in a bookshop, the formidable librarian and amateur sleuth Kitt Hartley and her friend Evie spring into action. There is a mystery of missing books to solve, but when a body is discovered, the stakes suddenly get a whole lot higher.
Librarian Kitt Hartley and her friend Evie Bowes thought their life had gone back to normal after the shocking events of Murder by the Minster. Then DI Malcolm Halloran breaks some bad news: DS Charlotte Banks has been suspended from duty, on suspicion of assaulting the suspect in the burglary of a local bookshop.
Evie wants justice for Charlotte, who she is sure was not the attacker, and how could any self-respecting librarian turn down the chance to find missing rare books? The two friends team up once again to investigate the rarefied world of York's bookshops and antiques dealers and find out just who has framed their friend.
But Kitt and Evie will soon learn that there are some books people will kill for - will this story have a happy ending?
