Library Journal Review

The main character in Van Gieson's series starter, which was first released in 2000, is a rare book librarian for the University of New Mexico, so lots of tidbits and library lore are included. The premise is simple-Claire's mentor, rare book collector Burke Lowell, has died, but not before appointing Claire as his estate administrator. His will leaves the family ranch to a daughter, but only if it becomes a nature preserve. This displeases most of his heirs and all of his neighbors, and some of his rarest books are stolen. Are the thefts tied to Blake's death? Verdict This is a good solid Southwestern mystery, with enjoyable characters, and a decent pace and plot. Some of the references are a little dated, especially regarding the technology, and it drags a little in the middle but is still a pleasurable listen. This is a worthy entry for Tony Hillerman and J.A. Jance fans.-Gretchen Pruett, New Braunfels P.L., TX (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
