Abstract:

Cliff Janeway, a Denver ex-cop-turned bookman, buys a signed first edition of a travelogue written by legendary explorer Richard Francis Burton. He is then confronted by an elderly woman, who claims that the book rightfully belongs to her and is convinced that crooked dealers swindled her family out of a large collection of works by the famous adventurer. After her sudden death, Janeway vows to restore the collection, but he finds himself up against murderous thugs, desperate authors, and unscrupulous businessmen.

Cliff is excited when he buys a signed first edition of a travelogue written by world famous explorer Richard Burton. Soon, he is confronted by a woman on her deathbed who claims that the book rightfully belongs to her and is part of a much larger library stolen years ago. He vows to find the truth, but his search is fraught with danger as a murderer is intent on stopping him.
