Matthew Sullivan plots a brilliant story in his debut novel. Joey, a bookstore regular, hangs himself on the top floor of his favorite store. His favorite bookseller, Lydia, finds him; and then all hell breaks loose for Lydia. Joey leaves his books to her, but they are full of holes cut out of the pages. Lydia begins to unravel the mystery Joey left her, but she becomes more and more disturbed as a trauma from her past insistently requires her attention. Skillfully done, with solid characters, a wonderful bookstore setting, and ingenious plot, Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore satisfies all your literary touchstones. More please!
