Bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright discovers that some treasures are worth killing for in this novel in the New York Times bestselling Bibliophile Mystery series. Brooklyn is thrilled to be appearing on the hit TV show This Old Attic as a rare-book expert and appraiser. Her first subject is a valuable first-edition copy of the children's classic The Secret Garden. After the episode airs, a man storms onto the set claiming that the owner of the book, a flower seller named Vera, found the book at his garage sale, and he wants it back--or else. Afterward, Randolph Rayburn, the show's host, confides in Brooklyn that he's terrified by the man's threats and fears that he is being stalked. When several violent incidents occur on the set, Brooklyn and her security expert boyfriend, Derek, are shaken. But Brooklyn's discovery of Vera's corpse in her flower shop convinces her she has to find the killer--before her chance at prime time and her life are canceled...permanently.
