great climax
The Sign of the Book is the 4th book in the Cliff Janeway series by John Dunning. Cliff agrees to help Erin determine if her estranged childhood friend, Laura Marshall, really killed her husband, or confessed to protect her troubled son. The tempter for Cliff is the opportunity to do a little police-type work, but the bonus comes in examining the dead man’s book collection. Another excellent Dunning novel filled with booky tidbits about signed copies and what makes a rare book valuable, about book fairs and book sales, and which also touches on autism. As always, realistic characters and dialogue, and this time a completely unexpected plot twist and a heart-stopping climax. Readers will look forward to the (so far) last of the series, The Bookwoman’s Last Fling.
