Summary: John Charles Gilkey is an obsessed, unrepentant thief of rare books from book fairs, stores, and libraries around the country. Ken Sanders is the book dealer with a penchant for detective work driven to catch him.

Allison Hoover Bartlett befriended both outlandish characters and found herself caught in the middle of efforts to recover hidden treasure. With a mixture of suspense, insight, and humor, she has woven this entertaining cat-and-mouse chase into a narrative that not only reveals exactly how Gilkey pulled off his dirtiest crimes, where he stashed the loot, and how Sanders ultimately caught him but also explores the romance of books, the lure to collect them, and the temptation to steal them.
