Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

Listeners will welcome the return of John Dunning's "bookman," introduced ten years ago in BOOKED TO DIE. Ex-detective turned rare book dealer Cliff Janeway is a minor cult figure among book-lovers. Based in Denver, Janeway travels in pursuit of rare books that have mysterious, murderous, and fascinating histories. Writings by nineteenth-century explorer Richard Burton are the object of Janeway's attention here. George Guidall knows this series well--having recorded the unabridged versions of Dunning's work. Guidall matches the engaging narrative style with his master's skill with pace and characterizations. Only complaint--Dunning's books are full of marvelous detail and minor characters--the abridgment just makes this listener long for the full text (available from Recorded Books in June 2004). R.F.W.
