HOMICIDE IN HARDCOVER
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth
This first in a new series is going to launch Carlisle to a bestselling position and have readers looking forward to the next installment of delightfully eccentric characters, droll dialogue and a meticulously planned crime. Bibliophile heroine Brooklyn Wainwright is brilliant, feisty and funny.
Just when rare book expert Brooklyn has the opportunity for a reunion with her mentor and fellow book restorer, the world goes a little crazy at a party for San Francisco's elite. Stumbling over the dying man lying in a pool of blood, Brooklyn tries to figure out the cryptic message he gives her -- along with the priceless and supposedly cursed copy of Faust. But Brooklyn becomes the target of the murder investigation after a stuffy -- and sexy -- British security guy finds her standing over the body. (OBSIDIAN, Feb., 304 pp., $6.99) Pat Cooper
