Lost books and old bones
"Delaney Nichols, originally of Kansas, is settling happily into her new life buying and selling rare books in Edinburgh, Scotland. When her new friends, who are students at a nearby medical school, come to the shop to sell a collection of antique medical books, Delaney|́|s sixth sense tells her that the multivolume work is of great value. But once Delaney finalizes the transaction, things take a dramatic turn. . . One of the medical students has turned up dead in the alley behind the Cracked Spine. Is there a sinister connection between the origin of these books and the people whose hands they fell into? Delaney seems to have her answer when, lo and behold, she finds some old scalpels in the bookshop|́|s warehouse|́|and discovers that they belonged to a long-dead doctor with ties to past crimes. But how can one American-born bookseller take it upon herself to solve this historic case? With the killer still on the loose, Delaney has only so much time left to find out. . ." - amazon.com
