The Bookman titles comprise an immensely entertaining series of literate whodunits about Cliff Janeway, cop and bookseller. In this one, a dying little old lady extracts Cliff's promise to recover a collection of Richard F. Burton first editions stolen some years before. Linguist, explorer, adventurer, eroticist, translator, and cad, Sir Richard apparently took a hand in sparking the American Civil War. Janeway investigates this intriguing historical hint as well as the priceless purloined writings, stumbling into danger and two sets of intrigues. Narrating stalwart George Guidall does his wonted fine job, making our hero believably streetwise and intellectual. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
