A mystery for every literature buff and for fans of noir fiction, a must-read for crime fiction buffs.

A manuscript worth killing for. Mickey Finnegan's journalism career is in free fall after a tragic outcome to his article on a political scandal. Mickey, lost and depressed, answers a strange phone call that catches his interest — a call that leads Mickey back to his well-honed investigative skills, his old haunts and his questionable contacts. A cat-and-mouse game in the high-stakes world of rare book and manuscript collecting, a search for a lost play...has Cardenio, one of Shakespeare's lost manuscripts, been found? And who would kill for it? Who can he trust? Follow Mickey on his pursuit from dive bars to the halls of academia, from friends to foes, and from despair to dare.
