Amazon.com Review

Every bibliophile’s worst nightmare is played out in Nelson DeMille’s The Book Case when a bookstore owner is crushed to death by an unsecure bookcase. Detective John Corey is one of the only officers at the scene--a crime bookstore--who doesn’t believe the death was an accident. With his trademark sarcasm and direct narration, DeMille spins an engrossing short story that’s a must-read for any fan of detective Corey. The tone, with plenty of book-related humor and puns, fits the setting perfectly, and though the ending is relatively predictable, getting there is most of the fun. Detective Corey’s keen eye for detail and his creative ability to manipulate situations are on full, entertaining display as he separates "accidental" from "premeditated" and "innocent" from "guilty." --Malissa Kent
