For Briar Creek Public Library’s first annual “fine amnesty” day, library director Lindsey Norris expected a day of hectic but worthwhile chaos.

Minerva “Minnie” Hamilton loves being Chilson District Library’s bookmobile librarian, but as the interim director she’s working sixty to seventy hour a week with little time to focus on the job she truly adores. Minnie’s stress levels aren’t lessened one bit when she discovers a body in the library stacks, one quickly identified as Andrea Vennard. In town for her great-aunt’s funeral, the murder seems to trigger a series of acts of vandalism and break-ins around the town, starting with Minnie’s beloved library. And as much as Chilson Deputy Ash Wolverson might want to help his girlfriend, his being trained as a detective mostly sidelines into an observing role.

In the year 2031, the Great Library of Alexandria exists as the only legal repository for original books in the world. To own a book is to risk death; the library enforces its proclamations with the ruthless Garda who conduct raids without mercy. Even personal journals are ultimately owned by the library, as the Doctrine of Mirroring allows rare Obscurists to recreate every book in print to be housed within the library.
