I love a good mystery and Linda Fairstein writes really intriguing ones, set in New York. There is always a bunch of interesting information thrown in concerning the sites used in her story. This story delves into the theft of missing maps, books and artwork that have been donated to the main library system in New York City. Facts about restoration are interesting to read if you like old books as I do. The plot involves murders, thefts and much more as you learn about the various characters and the history of the New York Public Library. I recommend this book highly.
