A mystery solved through clues in books - perfect for readers of The Shadow of the Wind and The Little Paris Bookshop.
A book about love, love of books, family and belonging.
Lydia, a 30-year-old bookshop worker, finds one of her favourite customers dead, hanging in the shop where she works, The Bright Ideas Bookstore, with a photo of her in his pocket. He has left her all his worldly belongings (which isn’t much), and a series of complex clues for her to uncover the mystery of what has happened to him – and in doing so, she must revisit a trauma from her own past, a brutal murder she witnessed as a young girl, in which the killer was never caught.
