Part of a series of longish short stories which center on marvelous books, which is a great idea. (Thank you to the publisher, from whom, via Netgalley, I received this for an honest review.) This was nicely done: a twisty story of suspense – especially if you’re of the target audience, a capital-B Booklover whose heart hurts at the idea of the destruction of a rare and wonderful book. It felt like it should have Alfred Hitchcock coming out to say "Good evening" and do a clever intro. Very nice indeed.
