Engaging characters (& the bibliomystery angle) grabbed me almost immediately & rarely let me go. Tightly plotted mystery within mysteries all character-driven & essential to the story. The only negative was a nagging want of more detail & Roth on tertiary & some secondary characters, but that would have unbalanced its tightly wound mystery.

FYI I received this ebook via Netgalley.com & the book's publisher free for an honest review.

Picked this up because I liked the cover and I'm a real sucker for anything bookstore related. I knew nothing about the actual plot and was surprised to find out it was a mystery - more like two of them.

I found the story interesting (if a little too neat) and the details were just creepy enough while not being creepy enough to make me want to stop reading.

This one didn't do it for me very much. The first half was slow and hard to trudge through (I even switched to audio and that was a terrible mistake; the narrator's reading style was so distracting that it ruined the book even more and I switched back to hard copy). Once I got through the grueling introductions I enjoyed it much more. But still, an easy book to put down and not one I will repeat.
