Being a librarian myself, I never thought I'd find a book that fit that particular description. But Beinhart has managed to weave his mild-mannered librarian hero into a web of political intrigue filled with evil right-wing conspirators and provocative women. Cudos to the author for making the librarians depicted interesting and sexy (even the one old woman librarian is revealed to have had a very active sex life in her younger days), not the usual stereotypes. My only small problems with it are that it could have been shorter by about 75 pages, and that the election-based plot is so thinly veiled that he may as well have called the incumbent "Bush" instead of "Scott". All in all, though a great read for anyone, not just librarians.
