In this smart, fast-paced mystery debut, Thomas Shawver introduces a charming, unlikely hero from the rarefied world of antique books. Book merchant Michael Bevan arrives at the Kansas City auction house hoping to uncover some hidden literary gold. Though the auction ad had mentioned erotica, Michael is amazed to find lovely Japanese Shunga scrolls and a first edition of a novel by French author Colette with an inscription by Ernest Hemingway. This one item alone could fetch a small fortune in the right market. As Michael and fellow dealer Gareth Hughes are warming up for battle, a stranger comes out of nowhere and outbids them—to the tune of sixty grand. But Gareth is unwilling to leave the auction house empty-handed, so he steals two volumes, including the Colette novel. When Gareth is found dead the next day, Michael quickly becomes the prime suspect: Not only had the pair been tossed out of a bar mid-fistfight the night before, but there is evidence from Michael’s shop at the crime scene. Now the attorney-turned-bookman must find out who wanted the Colette so badly that they would kill for it—and frame Michael. Desperate to stay out of police custody, Michael follows the murderer’s trail into the wealthiest echelons of the city, where power and influence meet corruption—and mystery and eroticism are perverted by pure evil. Unfortunately for Michael, one dead book dealer is only the opening chapter in a terrifying tale of high culture and lowlifes. Praise for The Dirty Book Murder “A page-turner . . . gripping and engaging . . . or, as dealers rate rare books, definitely VF—Very Fine!”—Carolyn Hart, New York Times bestselling author of the Death on Demand mysteries “An antique book auction, complex characters driven by greed, and bittersweet family tensions come together in this atmospheric thriller. Readers of crime fiction will enjoy the ride and look forward to bookstore owner Michael Bevan’s next adventure.”—Sally Goldenbaum, bestselling author of the Seaside Knitters series

When a bibliophile is murdered, it takes a bookseller to solve the crime. Good Advice, New Mexico, is a sunny town with a gloomy bookshop. The store’s eerie corridors are the province of Avery Sharecross, an ex-cop who has made the transition from chasing killers to tracking rare books. One afternoon, the local sheriff interrupts his book club meeting, and Sharecross’s old career collides with his new one. The area’s premier book collector has been found bludgeoned to death on the floor of his family library. A fifth-generation resident of Good Advice, Lloyd Fister devoted his life to books, accumulating a collection of local history that date backs to the sixteenth century. In his library, a single volume is missing: a Spanish book with a sinister past. Is the missing volume a clue, a motive, or a murder weapon? It will take a collector’s eye to decide. The Bibliomysteries are a series of short tales about deadly books, by top mystery authors.

A tale of murder, philosophy, and the cold will of a murderer intent on exercising his will through indifferent calculation. Taking the philosophical principles of Friedrich Nietzsche, the killer of The Murder Club is set in his purpose to express not just his own authority, but his contempt for others, a demonstration of his superiority. The other characters in the killer's game are both unknowing and uncomprehending, witnessing only the blunt violence. A quick spiral of multiple murders leads to the unveiling of past secrets and future agendas, while those in the path of the murderer's designs are left of put the pieces together in order to survive. However, even survival will come with a cost, one that will stretch the boundaries of sanity and acceptance.
