Description

On a trip to Scotland, bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright gets caught up in case involving a forbidden masterpiece in the second novel in the New York Times bestselling Bibliophile Mystery series.

Book restoration expert Brooklyn Wainwright is happy to be attending the world-renowned Edinburgh Book Fair. But then her ex, Kyle McVee, shows up with a bombshell. He has an original copy of a scandalous text that could change history--and humiliate the beloved British monarchy.

Trying to get Kyle's story out of her mind, Brooklyn takes a nighttime tour of the city. Unfortunately, the first landmark contains a real dead body--Kyle's. The police are convinced Brooklyn's the culprit, but with an entire convention of suspects, Brooklyn's conducting her own investigation. Before she can crack the case, she'll have to find out if the motive for murder was a 200-year-old secret--or something much more personal...
