I read 12% before putting this down. This is a story about a dysfunctional person working in a dysfunctional library, with dysfunctional leadership. One sentence implies there might be something strange, going on. Time to move on....

This story kept me engrossed from start to finish. The author has an easy to read style with great characterization and some lovely turns of phrase. A crime story with lots of twists, but believable characters with a touch of comedy. This was a free book and I notice that almost all the other books by this author are priced at $0.99. This is brilliant marketing. If the other books are written with the same quality as this one they will be well worth paying for. Brilliant story.
