Review

Through random (and mostly unhappy) circumstances, Clay Jannon seeks employment at Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstore in San Francisco, California. Inside this unusual bookstore, bookcases stretch deep into the dark - vertically - stories over your head.  After a short time working there, he starts to notice odd and mysterious customers coming for even odder and more mysterious books. A complex mystery unravels that will take just about every friend he's ever had (plus a few new ones he's made along the way) to solve. An action-packed, riveting read, I immediately wanted to read it again after finishing it. A great book club book, fascinating and in-depth discussion accompanied the reading.
