    The Great Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon out of his life as a San Francisco Web-design drone - and serendipity, sheer curiosity, and the ability to climb a ladder like a monkey has landed him a new gig working the night shift at Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. But after just a few days on the job, Clay begins to realize that this store is even more curious than the name suggests. There are only a few customers, but they come in repeatedly and never seem to actually buy anything....

    Susan says: "Fun, thought-provoking, mysterious.... and FUN !"
    "Possibly best listen ever!"

    Yes, already am listening to it again.


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely loved this book. Big mystery fan. There's pageturning mystery here but it's also incredibly well written, well performed and a total delight. Great for SF fans, fascinating portrayal of Google and just a magical experience. Immediately went looking for more by this author, but this is the first. Will have to wait.
