Brilliant mystery about Cliff Janeway, who owns an antiquarian bookstore in Denver. The author's revelations about how to find first editions of books created phenomenal competition among bookstore owners and collectors to acquire first editions of every type of fiction (some nonfiction, too, but mostly fiction).

More than 20 years after first reading this book, I can still envision the secret room with the world's most wonderful collection of first editions; they not only have signatures, but special notes and drawings from the authors.

If you love mysteries about bookselling, you cannot find any better series than this.
