Review

United Press International Very credible...An involved tale that satisfies the mystery reader's wants.

"St. Petersburg Times" (FL) A perfect mystery. It's intelligently written; the action is bafflingly logical; the reader learns something, and it's got a sucker punch of a finale.

"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) Crisp, direct prose and nearly pitch-perfect dialogue enhance this meticulously detailed page-turner.

"Mystery Scene" Memorable...Compellng...Vivdly realistic...Fascinating and utterly convincing...A suspenseful, well-crafted mystery that should keep readers guessing right up to the closing paragraph. This novel, friends, is a keeper.

"Boston Sunday Globe" I am...an unabashed admirer of John Dunning's "Booked to Die." No one...can fail to be delighted by the sort of folkloric advice Janeway carries with him.

"New York Times Book Review" A joy to read...[A] whodunit in the classic mode.

"The Philadephia Inquirer" A standout piece of crime fiction...Compelling page-turning stuff.

"The Plain Dealer" (Cleveland) Irresistible....An outstanding novel.

"The Denver Post" A knockout....One of the most enjoyable books I've read in a long time.

"San Francisco Chronicle" Fascinating...Assured and muscular prose...Very cannily and creepily, Dunning shows how quiet men with civilized tastes can turn into killers...The payoff, in pleasure, is for the reader.

From the Back Cover

Denver homicide detective Cliff Janeway may not always play by the book, but he's an avid collector of rare and first editions. After a local bookscout is killed on his turf, Janeway would like nothing better than to rearrange the suspect's spine. But the suspect, sleazeball Jackie Newton, is a master at eluding murder convictions. Unfortunately for Janeway, his swift form of off-duty justice costs him his badge.

Turning to his lifelong passion, Janeway opens a small bookshop -- all the while searching for evidence to put Newton away. But when prized volumes in a highly sought-after collection begin to appear, so do dead bodies. Now Janeway's life is about to change in profound and shocking ways as he attempts to find out who's dealing death along with vintage Chandlers and Twains. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
