Rare book dealer, ex-homicide cop, and private eye, Cliff Janeway is resourceful, impulsive, and hell-bent for danger. A unique character in crime fiction, Janeway is beloved by bibliophiles and mystery fans alike. In The Bookwoman's Last Fling, John Dunning puts Janeway back in the saddle, literally.

Tempted out of his bookstore into the world of horseracing, Janeway accepts an invitation from wealthy horse trainer H.R. Geiger to travel to Idaho and look at some rare first-edition books. The books are stunning, flawless children's classics that render the usually eloquent Janeway speechless. It's a collection worth millions of dollars, a fact that Janeway would be happy to discuss with Mr. Geiger if the man wasn't dead. Janeway becomes convinced that someone has been cherry-picking the book collection for personal profit. Soon he's off on Geiger's cold trail, to the California Races at Golden Gates Fields and Santa Anita Park.

Bringing together his inside knowledge of both books and horseracing, John Dunning provides another memorable, hard-boiled detective adventure, filled with all the authenticity and delicious trivia that fans have come to expect from the Bookman series.

    " Always fun to read, Dunning's mystery doesn't hold together in the end, but was enjoyable for the characters and the colorful race-track descriptions. "

    " These are diversionary summer reads. I like them because much of the action takes place in Denver and I am familiar with places mentioned in the story. Little above average detective story except the Clifford Janeway is a former detective turned bookseller and collector.These are diversionary summer reads.

    " I actually listened to the book on CD. It was interesting but a little long. I could have read it faster than the narrator was going and so I got bored in the middle. It would have been good on a long trip, but the few miles I go back and forth daily made it go on forever. The reader, George Goodwin was especially easy to listen to and has a great voice. I don't think the ending fit exactly either because there was so little about the antagonist at the beginning of the book. He wasn't a major player until the very end. So that made it a surprise ending, and I like to be able to guess the ending, even if I'm wrong. "
