Did you know that fetishes can be dangerous? They can, and there are characters here that harbor a rather extraordinary book fetish. This is a fine mystery story and will appeal to those who obsess over every detail of a book's printing process. The ...more

This should get a split rating of 2.5 for the first 9/10 of the book and 5 stars for the end. This was like reading the script of the new (in my head) NBC show, "Grimm: the puberty years." I was disappointed with it as it seemed like the book existed ...more
