Publication: The Mysterious Bookshop, 2012, New York
First edition. Limited edition of 100 copies issued in cloth, numbered and signed by the author. As new, unread copy in dust jacket. This is Biblio Mystery #6. "Despite making a measly wage at his wealthy uncle’s bookshop, Troy Pellingham is no bookworm. In fact, when he looks at a book, he only sees one thing: a murder weapon. After murdering his Uncle Rodney with a sharp shove to the back of a book case and a quick blow to the head with a large book, Troy thinks he has it all: revenge on his snooty uncle, a plush inheritance, and best of all, a future with his dishy cousin Marcella. Enter Lieutenant Columbo, whose flapping raincoat and absent-minded questioning only secures Troy’s confidence. When push comes to shove, Troy might find out too late that he has greatly underestimated not only Columbo, but also “Little Miss Innocent with a condom in her handbag” Marcella."'
