The theft of priceless books from a public library and the bloody attack on a security guard trying to protect them, sets Detective Kim Jansen on a twisting road of contradictory evidence and multiple suspects. Along the way, Jansen uncovers a 100-year-old family secret as a possible motive for the crimes.
At the center of it all, is a millionaire vintner and the intergenerational violence that drove him to pay his best friend, a down-on-his-luck gambling addict who is homeless, jobless, and estranged from his family, to steal seven books from Edward S. Curtis' epic 20-volume book, The North American Indian. Worth $3 million as a set, Jansen races to save the missing books from the black market and catch the crook.

This book wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
Bloody Pages had a slow start with getting deep into the plot, but once I hit that sweet spot well, I just couldn't put it down! The book contains what you could say is a fantastical story with an unexpected ending! Though not quite a mystery and maybe not quite a thriller in its traditional sense, but a great read that needs to be picked up and read!
