Meet Miss Zukas, the very proper, exceedingly conscientious, and relentlessly curious local librarian of Bellehaven, Washington. The Bellehaven police are baffled when a dead body turns up right in the middle of the library's fiction stacks. But Miss Helma Zukas - who never fails to make note of the slightest deviation from the norm - is not willing to let this nasty disruption stand. If the local law can't open the book on this case, Miss Zukas certainly intends to - with the help of her not-so-proper best friend, Ruth, a six-foot bohemian artist with a nose for gossip and a penchant for trouble.
This is the first entry in the 12-book series originally published by Avon/HarperCollins.

Great characters, both main and characters. Set on the lovely North West coast. A bit of romance & Lithuanian culture, Always interesting and great mystery twists. I hope Audible will add the rest of the series, What other books have a fearless librarian as sleuth?
Ruth, the crazy artist childhood friend. Hilarious and always getting Zukas into trouble.
All the performances are spot on
Did you know what dangerous places libraries can be, even if you don't read?
