Pages Gone By is more than just Erin, Ohio’s only used book store. It’s also a favorite meeting place for writers and readers. And early one morning, it becomes the scene of a murder when a body is found in the romance section.
Is the steamy novel, Love’s Dark Secret, clutched in the victim’s handa clue to the killer? Or is it more significant that the murder weapon was a statue of the iconic Maltese Falcon of film noir fame?
As polymath mystery writer Sebastian McCabe and sardonic sidekick Jeff Cody try to unmask the murderer of a friend, they get more help than they need from a talk show psychologist and a group of would-be mystery writers with more imagination than deductive skills. But only they know that one suspect has big secrets to hide – secrets that Mac and Jeff hope don’t have to be revealed.
An homage to the Golden Age of detective fiction, the witty and suspense Bookmarked for Murder once again shows why novelist and screenwriter Bonnie MacBird called Dan Andriacco “a master of mystery plotting.”
