Description

<CENTER><B>Murder&#39;s Bold Inscription</B></CENTER> <P><BLOCKQUOTE> "Whoever had broken into the shop might just have gone upstairs afterwards, might just be there still...My first reaction was anger: I wanted to roar up the stairs, only I could hear Barnabas saying, the way he used to when I was little: "Temper, Dido! Count to twenty-nine..." </BLOCKQUOTE><P>Selling rare books has its moments, but few are anything close to thrilling--except when Dido Hoare&#39;s scoundrel of an ex-husband suddenly reappears and puts a pulse of excitement in the air.But events go from interesting to intense when someone ends up murdered and the culprit seems to think Dido has something worth killing for, too. <P>With the help of her father, Barnabas, a retired academic with a penchant for mysteries, Dido may be able to divert the killer long enough to figure out who wants her dead and why. Recovering from a heart attack, the irrepressible Barnabas is taking chances that are likely to give Dido a coronary of her own, and give the police a bad case of indigestion. But as Dido and Barnabas are about to learn, every crime has its victims and its payoffs--it&#39;s just a matter of being on the right side of the bookshelf before everything comes tumbling down.
