Bored and dissatisfied with her job at the public library, Kathleen is jolted out of her ennui when five overdue books are returned to the library, slashed and containing a warning to all library employees. Narrator Judith West uses her mature, slightly raspy voice to great effect, shifting her tone to match the gradual buildup of suspense as the people around Kathleen begin to die in suspicious accidents. While West is particularly adept at the older characters' voices, her Kathleen rings charmingly true with a teenager's resentfulness and occasional petulance.
Disturbed when five books about death are returned overdue to the library, slashed and containing a warning on a bookmark, library employee Kathleen is terrified when people close to her start falling victim to tragic "accidents".
