Jane couldn't say no when her nanny's sister needed a place to stay, but she's certainly glad to see her houseguest go. In just two short weeks as assistant director of the Shady Hills Public Library, Crystal Ryerson has proven herself a meddler par excellence. Relying on gossip and a powerful superiority complex, she has branded her realtor's daughter an unfit mother, and formally accused a local school librarian of stealing computers. Popular, she is not. Still, it's shocking when the next meeting of Jane's library reading group crashes to a halt as thousands of pounds of books and shelves come toppling down on poor Crystal. Especially when Jane's boyfriend, Detective Stanley Greenberg, makes a grim discovery: the bolts on the bookcase had been deliberately removed. By someone who had been at the meeting. Jane knows the strange events are all part of the same puzzle and she can't resist searching for the missing pieces. She manages to stay on the murderer's trail can go both ways, and this one may well lead the killer right to Jane's doorstep.
