Synopsis:
Forensic Librarian Dr. Vela Ostofvold, profiles rare books. Through the study of ephemera, inscriptions and notations left by each reader, another story beyond print accumulates. In her quest to find a Glossographia, a dictionary published in 1656, she discovers Persolino’s Rare Bookstore. The owner’s daughter Amelia soon becomes a friend and an emotional bodyguard; challenging Vela’s belief that she is responsible for her father’s absence. Vela finds a cache of letters written from India. Interwoven in the exotic travelogue of Maharajas and fire dancers in the desert she finds clues to solving the mystery of her paternity. Kirkus Review: Sikstrom brings ambitious scope to this narrative, which encompasses a compelling family mystery, a heroine whose career could be the subject of its own series, several exotic locales, and a fairy tale–like love story. Sikstrom is mostly successful in handling all these elements. Overall, this is a rich and entertaining debut. A lush, atmospheric novel that combines literary detective work, romance and international flair.
