    DescriptionA charming and hilarious adventure that has it all: secret societies, unbreakable codes, underground lairs, cutting - edge technology, the googleplex...and lots of books! Clay Jannon, twenty - six and unemployed, reads books about vampire policemen and teenage wizards. Familiar, predictable books. Books that fit neatly into a section at the bookstore. But he is about to encounter a new species of book entirely: secret, strange, and frantically sought - after. These books will introduce him to the strangest, smartest girl he's ever met. They will lead him across the country, through the shadowed spaces where old words hide. They will set him on a quest to unlock a secret held tight since the time of Gutenberg - a secret that touches us all. But before that, these books will get him a job. Welcome to Mr Penumbra's 24 - Hour Bookstore.
