Reviews by AHML cardholders
As the overnight bookseller in a strange bookstore, Clay Jannon unravels the secrets of its shelves and customers. His interesting discoveries and sometimes humorous deductions keep the plot lively, but the characters are a little too flat, and I never really found a beating heart at the center of this story. The most fascinating “character” is the company known as Google. Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore will appeal to readers interested in any combination of technology, books, antiquity, and mystery.
