The only thing worse than a noisy bookstore is patrons literally dying to get out. An ancient book is the only clue.
Elise Pepper has landed her dream job at the Capture the Magic book store. Peace and quiet and thousands of books to herself - including a $2m first edition of Alice in Wonderland. What more could she ask for?
It can't last of course. Her blissful solitude is rudely interrupted when someone turns the second floor of the building into a Down the Rabbit Hole-themed escape room.
But the noise is the least of her worries - what's worse is the dead bank executive upstairs and the missing first edition. Now Elise is suspected of both theft and murder, even as the killer taunts her with Alice in Wonderland clues. Can she find out who did it before she takes the fall for the crime?
"A great read, and doubly so if you're a fan of Alice in Wonderland! But even if you don't have a soft spot for Alice and the Mad Hatter, it's a well written plot with well developed characters and it held my attention and kept me wondering right until the end."
"I was enthralled from the first page."
"The book kept me on the edge of my seat til the end, and has a great ending." --Amazon reviewers
