The Mystery Lovers Book Club reads The Bookman’s Wake by John Dunning
Canton Public Library
Wednesday, Sep. 27, 7:45 PM-
"The Mystery Lovers Book Club," at Canton Public Library, meets at the library at 7:45 pm and goes to a nearby Canton pub or restaurant for our book discussion. The September selection is The Bookman's Wake, by John Dunning. The plot: "Denver cop-turned-bookdealer Cliff Janeway is lured by an enterprising fellow ex-policeman into going to Seattle to bring back a fugitive wanted for assault, burglary, and the possible theft of a priceless edition of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven." The bail jumper turns out to be a vulnerable young woman calling herself Eleanor Rigby, who is also a gifted book finder. Janeway is intrigued by the woman -- and by the deadly history surrounding the rare volume. Hunted by people willing to kill for the antique tome, a terrified Eleanor escapes and disappears. To find her -- and save her -- Janeway must unravel the secrets of the book's past and its mysterious maker, for only then can he stop the hand of death from turning another page (simonandschuster.com)." Call or come by to reserve a copy of the book. All are welcome; registration is requested. Canton Public Library is at 40 Dyer Avenue, Canton.
