Sure, her patients might smell like mold and have spines made of leather, but no ailing book is going to die on her watch. The same can't be said of Abraham Karastovsky, Brooklyn's friend and former employer. On the eve of the celebration for his latest book restoration, Brooklyn finds her mentor lying a pool of his own blood. With his final breath, Abraham leaves Brooklyn a cryptic message, 'Remember the devil, ' and smiles as she takes possession of his priceless, and supposedly cursed, copy of Goethe's Faust "....

A first for her and not a badly written piece all things together.
A crazily named heroine, Brooklyn, chasing after a killer and a book restoration for Faust. Well, it could be better, and oh so much worse. XD The thing I liked about this book was two-fold: it was a fast read (read it last weekend) and it has some of the craziest people you could ever imagine, unless you're from San Francisco. Which I am. So there.
Hippy parents, crazy preachers, Sonoma, wine, food, San Francisco hills, people, antique books, snarky protagonist thoughts - it's all there.
There were some minor editorial needs that missed, and it is a first book so there were issues there, which I frankly ignored because it was a first book. But the one thing...the absolute ONE thing that stuck out and baby it was a bute! PALM TREES DOWN THE MIDDLE OF MARKET STREET.
No. Honey, that's YOUR town of Ventura. SF doesn't HAVE palms on Market. Never has. And a quick trip to maps.google.com and their wonderful pictures would have told you that. Well, maybe just a quick trip up from La-la land. But hey! At least she got the majority of it right!
I'd give this book 5 stars, but that would show my prejudice. It's worth about 2 really. That's it.
