There is no better hiding place for clues—or red herrings—than inside the pages of a book...

With Martin Edwards as your librarian and guide, delve into an irresistible stack of bibliomysteries, perfect for every booklover and armchair sleuth. This anthology features much-loved Golden Age detectives Nigel Strangeways, Philip Trent, Detective Chief Inspector Roderick Alleyn, among others. But readers should be warned that the most riveting tales often conceal the deadliest of secrets...A bookish puzzle threatens an eagerly-awaited inheritance. A submission to a publisher narrates a murder that increasingly seems to be a work of nonfiction. An irate novelist puts a grisly end to the source of his writer's block. In this world of resentful ghost writers, indiscreet playwrights, and unscrupulous book collectors, literary prowess is often a prologue to disaster.
