The Sign of the Book

Janeway has agreed to help Laura Marshall, a friend of his bookstore partner, who's accused of murdering her husband. While Janeway tries to gather the facts, he pulls long shifts standing watch over the Marshall home, filled with books signed by their celebrity authors. When a shifty pair of alleged book dealers turns up, and Janeway begins to suspect that Laura's son is hiding critical information, the case becomes a maze of clues and increasing danger.

    "Unconvincing"

    I really enjoyed Dunning's first 2 books. This started well, but the ending just wasn't convincing. I felt taken advantage of.

    "Signed but a second edition"

    I have read all of the Janeway series. This has been my least favorite so far. I have another yet to go but I was a little dissappointed. The story was good. The theme was good. The ideas were good. Everything was good. I just really have a high standard and expect great.

    Just an old retired guy, eyesight not as good as it was, so really enjoy listening to these books. Been listening for about 6 years.

    "Good story line"

    Most of the Bookman series have been good books. Nothing outstanding, just really good listens.

    "Engaging"

    I read this many years ago and became addicted to Dunning's books. I regret that he doesn't write more. If you like books and like adventure you can't ask for more.
