The Bad Book Affair, by Ian Sansom
Very funny mystery, starring the truly unusual character of Israel Armstrong, an English Jewish vegetarian librarian who, for reasons that baffle even him, is working a mobile library service in Northern Ireland. This is the second of the series that I have read, and I enjoyed this one even more than the first, which I found hilarious. Literate and oddly told, this would go nicely with The Broken Teaglass, for readers who like their mysteries less bloody and more wordy.
