A rare book inspires a crime of passion in the fourth novel in the New York Times bestselling Bibliophile Mystery series.
When she receives an exquisite copy of the Kama Sutra from her best friend, Robin, to appraise and restore, bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright anticipates recreating a beautiful book and spicing up her love life. But before Brooklyn can get started, Robin winds up in big trouble: her apartment’s been ransacked, and the great guy she recently met lies murdered in her bed. Now Robin is the #1 suspect.
Luckily Brooklyn’s boyfriend, British security expert Derek Stone, has moved to San Francisco and is ready to help. And not a moment too soon as Brooklyn’s own apartment is found thoroughly searched. Obviously, exploring the Kama Sutra’s bliss will have to wait until after Brooklyn finds the killer...
