Part 2 of the A 42nd Street Library Mystery series.

							When a murder desecrates the halls of New York City's iconic 42nd Street Library, Raymond Ambler, the library's curator of crime fiction, has a personal interest in solving the crime. But his quest to solve the murder is complicated by personal entanglements involving his friend-or perhaps more-than-friend-Adele Morgan. Not only does Adele's relationship with the staffer who was murdered get in the way of Ambler's investigation but her growing interest in a darkly handsome Islamic scholar disturbs him. 

When the Intelligence Division of the New York Police Department takes over the case from NYPD homicide detective Mike Cosgrove-Ambler's friend and sometimes partner-in-crime-solving-Ambler suspects that the murder of the young woman and the curious intervention of NYPD's intelligence division are connected. But with the city's law-enforcement establishment determined to stop his investigation, the inquisitive and intrepid librarian faces challenges that may put his very life at risk.

“The second title in a nicely bookish series, this one highlights the formidable memory and ratiocinative skills of Ambler, the curator of crime fiction at the landmark New York Public Library building on 42nd Street…” - The New York Times
