Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Brooklyn Wainwright (The Lies That Bind), San Francisco's bookbinder-cum-crime solver, steps away from her desk again in this smart and intriguing cozy. Steeped in San Francisco culture and characters, including the hippie commune parents and requisite gay and lesbian friends, this beach read has the bonus of spy intrigue built into its plot, and not just in Brooklyn's James Bond-like boyfriend, Derek Stone. BFF Robin has just returned from a trip to India bearing a valuable book for Brooklyn to restore. A handsome Ukrainian guy Robin met spends the night—but then he's murdered execution-style in her bed. Now the bad guys are after Brooklyn, too, but why? VERDICT There is a high body count here for a cozy, but rest assured, all killings are done off-scene. A terrific read for those who are interested in the book arts and enjoy a counterculture foray and ensemble casts. Great fun all around!

    This is the fourth book in the Bibliophile Mystery series by Kat

    This is the fourth book in the Bibliophile Mystery series by Kate Carlisle. The book opens on Robin Tully, Brooklyn's best friend returning from 3 weeks on tour of India. Robin's travel company specializes in sacred and mystical destinations all over the world. She brings with her a book that her mother, who she visited while in India, had asked her to give to Brooklyn to have refurbished and appraised for a friend. The friend, and older, wealthy Indian man that Robin says is probably in love with her mother included a letter authorizing Brooklyn to do what is necessary to increase the value of the book. The book turns out to be an eighteenth century copy of the Kama Sutra, with an elaborately decorated peacock on the cover and embellished with tiny rubies, emeralds and diamonds. Brooklyn is beside herself with joy of getting to take this book apart and clean it up.

    Unfortunately, things don't stay all happiness and joy. The very next night, Derek and Brooklyn are awakened to someone banging on the front door of the apartment complex and screaming. Turns out to be Robin, covered in blood and in shock. Apparently Robin's date that night stayed over and Robin woke up to find that he had been shot twice in her bed, while she was asleep right next to him. So, although Brooklyn didn't find a dead body this time and she isn't a suspect, she is once again hip deep in a crime scene. This time to protect her friend Robin.

    In this book, we really get to know Robin and her background. Commander Derek Stone is living with Brooklyn and has opened a branch of his company in San Francisco. Plus the usual cast of wonderful characters are back, including Brooklyn's parents, their mystical advisor Avatar Robson, aka Guru Bob, Brooklyn's neighbor's Suzie, Vinnie, Jeremy & Sergio, and the shadowy Gabriel. A new addition is the Chung Family that has moved in to the building. The little boy Tyler is too cute for words and steals the spotlight in his scenes. 

    This was a wonderful addition to the series and I am writing quickly to get this review done so that I can go on to the next book in the series.

    cute as always, but the same as always too

    I thought "Murder Under Cover" was a little slow this time and I think a part of it was the love life interaction. Personally I am getting a little tired of Robin falling in bed with everyone and Brooklyn's not being able to get serious. I love the rest of the story line in all of these books but this part is getting old.

    Murder Under Cover is a Hit

    Murder Under Cover By: Kate Carlisle Publisher: Obsidian Mystery Copyright - May 2011 Brooklyn's best friend (and almost sister) is home from her trip to India and has a gift for her. It's an exquisite copy of the Kama Sutra which Robin brought home for her to appraise and restore. Thus begins Brooklyn's next adventure as Robin gets into trouble as deep as the Mariana Trench. Robin wakes up next to the dead and bloody body of her latest boyfriend and to make her feel even worse, her apartment has been totally ransacked. What's a girl to do? Brooklyn is ready and willing to do whatever she can to help clear Robin, and thankfully her boyfriend, the British security expert Eric Stone is nearby ready and able to lend his assistance to the matter. You'll meet strange Ukrainians and Russians, all looking for something that Brooklyn has no idea about. Her apartment also gets searched and people near to her get hurt. It's taking on International proportions. This is the fourth book in Kate Carlisle's Bibliophile Mystery series. She manages once again to come up with interesting and plots, with twists and turns, lots of adventure, a bit of comedy, and more than a bit or romance tossed in for spiciness. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars for its story, cast, location and all the good stuff in the middle that keeps us up at night till we finish reading it. FTC Full Disclosure - This book was sent to me by the author in hopes that I would review it.

    Really loved this one!!!!!

    Brooklyn Wainwright loves her job rebinding old books, sometimes finding hidden treasure, sometimes the treasure is just the joy of rescuing a book that is centuries old.

    When she is given an ancient copy of the Kama Sutra written in French and covered in jewels to restore and appraise from her friend Robin, she is not only excited about restoring the book but the research may also add a little spark to her love life.

    When Robin wakes up with a man she just met murdered in her bed, she becomes the prime suspect. Then both the friends lives are turned upside down as they try to uncover why apartments are being ransacked, other people are dying, and Robin's mother, who lives in India, and gave Robin the Kama Sutra book to give to Brooklyn, shows up for an unexpected visit.



    This book was so good, one twist and turn after another, plus quite an education about binding books and the Kama Sutra. I liked the first 3 books but I loved this one. Brooklyn evolves more and more with each installment in this series and I really liked her in this one. Sometimes it takes time to get to know a character and that is the case with this series. She has become more realistic to me over the series and my interest in rare books has grown too. Plus the real international mystery drew me right into this story. I was very happy to read and review this book. Wonderful story, not to be missed.


    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from The Obsidian Publishing Group, a division of Penguin Publishing. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255 : "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
