Sherelyn from Takoma Park, MD said on Goodreads:
What's not to like about this??? Horses, rare books, a mystery, a good detective character--this was a great break from The Brothers Karamazov.
Kj from Dayton, OH said on Goodreads:
Always fun to read, Dunning's mystery doesn't hold together in the end, but was enjoyable for the characters and the colorful race-track descriptions.
Vilo from Columbus, OH said on Goodreads:
Very satisfying mystery set in the horse racing world of the western United States. Apparently all his mysteries (or the Janeway series anyway) have to with book collecting. I'll be reading more.
Rare book dealer, ex-homicide cop, and private eye, Cliff Janeway is resourceful, impulsive, and hell-bent for danger. A unique character in crime fiction, Janeway is beloved by bibliophiles and mystery fans alike. In The Bookwoman's Last Fling, puts Janeway back in the saddle, literally.
Tempted out of his bookstore into the world of horseracing, Janeway accepts an invitation from wealthy horse trainer H.R. Geiger to travel to Idaho and look at some rare first-edition books. The books are stunning, flawless children's classics that render the usually eloquent Janeway speechless. It's a collection worth millions of dollars, a fact that Janeway would be happy to discuss with Mr. Geiger if the man wasn't dead. Janeway becomes convinced that someone has been cherry-picking the book collection for personal profit. Soon he's off on Geiger's cold trail, to the California Races at Golden Gates Fields and Santa Anita Park.
Bringing together his inside knowledge of both books and horseracing, provides another memorable, hard-boiled detective adventure, filled with all the authenticity and delicious trivia that fans have come to expect from the Bookman series.
