THE BOOKMAN'S WAKE

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by George Guidall

Mystery & Suspense • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

Like old books? Like rumaging in used book stores? Dream to find a perfect jacketed first edition? Like great murder mysteries? Then this is the book for you! John Dunning is an authority on rare books, and so is his hero, Cliff Janeway. This book is filled with esoterica on collecting, as well as being a superbly crafted suspense. A priceless copy of Poe's The Raven, and the small press that printed it, are at the heart of the tale. Avarice and deification are the ongoing motives. A master of timing and nuance, George Guidall brings Janeway to life from the first sentence. This is one of those paradoxical books that you can't wait to finish, while you don't ever want it to end. The only hope is for a sequel. B.H.B.
