Waterstones Says

This irresistible cosy crime mystery fit for bibliophiles sees a police sergeant strike up a friendship with a book collector whose untimely demise will lead the former into the surprisingly devious world of the rare and second-hand book market.

An honest policeman, Sergeant Wigan, escorts a drunk man home one night to keep him out of trouble and, seeing his fine book collection, slowly falls in to the gentle art of book collecting. Just as the friendship is blossoming, the policeman's book-collecting friend is murdered. To solve the mystery of why the victim was killed, and which of his rare books was taken, Wigan dives into the world of 'runners' and book collectors, where avid agents will gladly cut you for a first edition and then offer you a lift home afterwards.

This adventurous mystery, which combines exuberant characters with a wonderfully realised depiction of the second-hand book market, is sure to delight bibliophiles and classic crime enthusiasts alike.

“A must-read for booksellers, book-buyers, book-lovers!”

A wonderfully enjoyable mystery romping around various bookshops - another spectacular addition to the series and certainly a worthy title to hold the accolade of no. 100!

“Slow Slow …”

This book was far too slow and the plot was unconvincing. I think the protagonists stopped to have a cup of tea on practically every page.
