The stack of books I have yet to read is taller than I am but that hasn’t dissuaded me from looking for others others to add to it. Especially when it comes to mysteries. I was browsing through some upcoming releases on Amazon the other day and this one caught my attention:
A mystery that involves books or the book industry is something I will definitely check out but I’ve not read too many that focus on a library. It sounds interesting! Here’s what it is about:
This first book in an irresistible new series introduces librarian and reluctant sleuth Raymond Ambler, a doggedly curious fellow who uncovers murderous secrets hidden behind the majestic marble façade of New York City’s landmark 42nd Street Library.
Murder at the 42nd Street Library follows Ambler and his partners in crime-solving as they track down a killer, shining a light on the dark deeds and secret relationships that are hidden deep inside the famous flagship building at the corner of 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue.
In their search for the reasons behind the murder, Ambler and his crew uncover sinister, and profoundly disturbing, relationships among the scholars studying in the iconic library. Included among the players are a celebrated mystery writer who has donated his papers to the library’s crime fiction collection; that writer’s long-missing daughter, a prominent New York society woman with a hidden past, and more than one of Ambler’s colleagues at the library. Shocking revelations lead inexorably to the traumatic events that follow―the reading room will never be the same. (Amazon)
Murder at the 42nd Street Library by Con Lehane will be released on April 26th.
