this is the 4th in a series about an retired cop who opens a rare books store. Interesting stuff in all Dunning's books about the book dealing business; first additions, books signed by the author, rare books. Is Cliff Janeway likeable ? Not to me ecept when he gets passionate about books. He still has a macho cop's way of looking at the world. This is helpful when mysteries arise about the books he's dealing with. I will keep reading these.
