Note "Murder is always a bestseller"--Cover.
Summary "Brooklyn Wainwright is a skilled surgeon. Sure, her patients might smell like mold and have spines made of leather, but no ailing book is going to die on her watch. The same can't be said of Abraham Karastovsky, Brooklyn's friend and former employer. On the eve of the celebration for his latest book restoration, Brooklyn finds her mentor lying a pool of his own blood. With his final breath, Abraham leaves Brooklyn a cryptic message, "Remember the devil," and smiles as she takes possession of his priceless, and supposedly cursed, copy of Goethe's Faust ... Brooklyn suddenly finds herself accused of murder and theft, thanks to the humorless--but attractive--British security officer who finds her kneeling over the body. Now she has to read the clues left behind by her mentor if she is going to restore justice.... "--From publisher description..
