The honest Sergeant Wigan, escorts the inebriated Michael Fisk home one night to keep him out of trouble. On seeing his fine book collection, Wigan slowly falls in to the gentle art of book collecting...
Our Brilliantly Bookish novels can be ordered on their own or as part of a fabulous Go Away I'm Reading gift set including a bone china mug and cosy reading socks.

Just as the friendship is blossoming, Fisk is murdered. To solve the mystery of why Fisk was killed, and which of his rare books was taken, Wigan dives into the antiquarian book trade where pleasantries and a kind of collector’s code, mask simmering jealousies and ruthless desires. 

This adventurous bibliomystery, which has remained a rarity itself since its first publication in 1956, combines exuberant characters with a wonderfully realised depiction of the second-hand book market, is sure to delight bibliophiles and classic crime enthusiasts alike.
