    Good Fast-Paced Suspense

    This book was full of twists and turns and kept my attention until the end. I recommend this book if you are in the mood for fast-paced, well- written suspense. I bought the next book in the series since I enjoyed this one so much.

    Welcome To The Big Leagues, Janeway

    I've read all of Dunning's Clif Janeway novels and have enjoyed them all. At first it was a peek into the world of Bookmen and Scouts, but with each new entry, Dunning has brought this series into the company of Parker's Spencer series, Sanford's Lucas Davenport, Connelly's Harry Bosh, etc. This series has made it to some very good company.

    Lots of surprises !

    This is my first John Dunning book...but absolutely will not be my last. I enjoyed his style of writing. He reminds me of Nelson DeMille...another great story teller. This was a very good book, (the ending was very exciting), and I recommend it.

    GExciting mystery

    Former Denver police officer Cliff Janeway has known his Twice Told Books bookstore partner, attorney Erin D¿Angelo for two years so that he is capable of telling when she has something bothering her. He remains patient until Erin explains she needs Cliff to do her a favor. Laura Marshall is accused of killing her spouse and wants Erin to defend her. However, Erin informs Cliff she will never forgive Laura for stealing her lover who became her husband, but still the ethical side of her needs to know if Laura¿s confession that she killed Bobby is legal and true......................... Cliff would do anything for Erin so he journeys to Paradise to learn the truth and offer some assistance to Laura¿s lawyer Parley McNamara struggling to overcome the confession. In the Western Colorado town, Cliff aggravates the arresting officer, battles with bibliophiles who behave more like mob goons than book lovers, and begins to wonder if one of the three Marshall kids killed their father as Laura never seems to fully cooperate with her defense......................... THE SIGN OF THE BOOK is an excellent cleverly designed mystery filled with red herrings, and numerous twists and turns, but fans will still compare this to the already classic last year¿s THE BOOKMAN¿S PROMISE, which few works can compare with. The story line is fantastic as readers go down a path thinking they know what will happen only to find a sudden yet logical detour that works quite well and is totally believable. The sidebars involving rare books are always a bonus, but that might be this reviewer¿s personal bias. The Bookman is terrific in this fine investigative tale........................
