Publisher's Summary

It's a quiet, snowy morning at The Cracked Spine bookshop when book seller Delaney Nichols receives a mysterious visitor, a messenger. He presents her with a perplexing note: an invitation to a meeting with eccentric socialite Shelagh O'Conner, who requests Delaney's participation in an exclusive treasure hunt. Delaney is intrigued, but also cautious: Shelagh, while charming in person, has a reputation for her hijinks as a wealthy young woman in the '70s.

But Delaney is enticed by the grand prize at the end of the treasure hunt: a highly valuable first edition copy of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson. The winner is also to receive the contents of Shelagh's vast library, and all participants will earn a large sum of cash. The night after the first meeting of the treasure hunters, however, several homes in Edinburgh are robbed in a manner reminiscent of Shelagh's old tricks. And when a man connected to Shelagh is killed, suspicion builds. Except Shelagh herself has disappeared from her home, seemingly kidnapped by the villain.

Terror mounts throughout the city as Delaney attempts to solve the mystery, while trying to evade the killer's clutches. But it's hard to know who to trust when around every corner, a new monster could be lurking.

f Fun Read

This was a fun read from a fun series. I liked how the story evolved though the ending came together in a bit of a rush. still, the likeable characters and good plot earn it a five star.
Note to Tartan Noir fans, of whom I big one: this series is lighter than that genre. still very enjoyable just no noir...

Great story

I recently found Paige's books and have listened to all of them. I enjoy her description of Edinburgh and what she sees. Paige does an excellent job of describing her characters and how she feels about them. The stories are well written, easy to follow, but you still need to listen for the clues to who done it and why. Can't wait for her next book from The Cracked Spine.

Better than the last!

Although the author still gets a lot of the American vs. Scottish details wrong, this particular installment manages to carry you along in the story. I’d worried t
For this series after the last experience, but this one was an improvement.

For this audiobook, I do have to note that the narrator is still really off. Her Scottish accents are spotty, at best, and sometimes sound quite Irish.

Best narrator ever

I just love it to listen to Susan Boyce. She brings every story to life without exaggerated voice changes. Thank you Susan!
