Summary
This collection of crime for bibliophiles includes stories about rare books, bookshop, libraries, manuscripts, magical books, collectors--in short, the wonderful universe that makes this precious object we all love so important and priceless. Ian Rankin sets his tale of the lost original manuscript of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in the legendary Paris Bookshop Shakespeare & Co., while F. Paul Wilson offers a book with remarkable powers. Joyce Carol Oats portrays an overly ambitious dealer in mystery fiction, while James Grady has the 'Condor' working int he Library of Congress. Stephen Hunter tells a previously unknown story of Alan Turing set during World War I--involving a book that could change the history of the world--and Peter Lovesey writes about box full of Agatha Christie tiles that just may be priceless. Carolyn Hart's story is about an astonishing inscription in a book, while Megan Abbott and Denise Mina add their Edgar-nominated stories to this stellar collection. Whether you taste is for the traditional mystery, something a little more hard-boiled, or the bizarre and humorous tale, you will find exactly your cup of tea in this outstanding collection of fifteen stories by the most distinguished mystery writers working today
