I thought long and hard about how to write this review. It has a typical Dunning plot line,,with twists and turns throughout the book. The resolution was good but not surprising to me, although I had not figured out who the culprit was, but I had narrowed it down to two or three characters. I have decided to let the book describe itself by quoting from the publishers notes on the back of the Pocket Book soft cover edition.
"Cliff Janeway is back, lured by an enterprising (and suspicious) ex-cop to Seattle to bring back a fugitive wanted for the possible theft of a priceless edition of Edgar Allen Poe's 'The Raven.' The bail jumper turns out to be a young, vulnerable woman who calls herself 'Eleanor Rigby, and who turns out to be a gifted book scout (she taught Janeway a few trucks about book scouting)" The note goes on to say that Janeway is intrigued by Eleanor, and also by the people who are pursuing her to retrieve the book. I recommend this book to readers who don't mind thinking while thy read. All others would do well to stay away.
