Bruce Cable owns a popular bookstore in the
sleepy resort town of Santa Rosa on Camino Island in Florida. He makes
his real money, though, as a prominent dealer in rare books. Very few
people know that he occasionally dabbles in unsavory ventures.
Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer’s block
who has recently been laid off from her teaching position. She is
approached by an elegant, mysterious woman working for an even more
mysterious company. A generous monetary offer convinces Mercer to go
undercover and infiltrate Cable’s circle of literary friends, to get
close to the ringleader, to discover his secrets.
But soon Mercer learns far too much, and there’s trouble in paradise—as only John Grisham can deliver it.

MY THOUGHTS: I really liked this book and who wouldn't.....it's all about books. The author has several books and authors included in the story line. It also takes place in one of my favorite places, a book store. Not the big company book stores, but a mom and pop book store. Lots of books and cozy places to sit, even has a coffee shop in it. Mercer is hired to work her way into the book stores owners circle of friends. Bruce Cable owns the shop. He also has a good collection of rare books. He is also suspected of having the stolen manuscripts stolen from Princeton university. The FBI, the thieves, and a private contractor all want the manuscripts. And does Mercer get into the circle? Does she fin the manuscripts? Read the book, it's a really good. I give this book 5....
