Description
Before The Bad Book Affair, before The Delegate's Choice (a.k.a. The Book Stops Here) and Mr. Dixon Disappears, there was this little gem, the first in Ian Sansom's series of "blissful British comedies for the thinking escapist" (Times, London). Israel Armstrong is a passionate soul, lured to Ireland by the promise of an exciting new career. Alas, the job that awaits him is not quite what he had in mind: trundling around Northern Ireland in a dilapidated van converted into a mobile library. Still, Israel is not one to dwell on disappointment—after all, the scenery is lovely, the people are charming—but where are the books? The rolling library's 15,000 volumes have mysteriously gone missing, and it's up to Israel to discover who would steal them ... and why. And perhaps, after that, he will tackle other bizarre and perplexing local mysteries—like, where does one go to find a proper cappuccino and a decent newspaper?
