Set in San Francisco, with occasional detours to book fairs abroad, this series follows Brooklyn as she deciphers cryptic codes in antiquarian books to uncover secrets and treachery, curates clues, tracks down killers, and evades becoming the prime suspect—or the next victim. The cases feature intrigue, conspiracies, romance, and clever wordplay, starting in the titles of volumes, such as If Books Could Kill and The Lies That Bind.
