Cover Crush: Murder at the 42nd Street Library by Con Lehane

 








Erin over at Flashlight Commentary is the one that came up with the cover crush idea and I loved it so much that I decided that every Thursday would I post a cover that I really love. 
 
Check out this week's cover crush over at Flashlight Commentary and 2 Kids and Tired Books!

***********

This week's Cover Crush is for Murder at the 42nd Street Library by Con Lehane. Not only has it a wonderful with the lion and the police tape, it also have a great title. And, the font for the title is one that I also like. In my opinion is it a very eye-cathing cover!



Murder at the 42nd Street Library opens with a murder in a second floor office of the iconic, beaux-arts flagship of the New York Public Library. Ray Ambler, the curator of the library's crime fiction collection, joins forces with NYPD homicide detective Mike Cosgrove in hopes of bringing a murderer to justice.

In his search for the reasons behind the murder, Ambler uncovers hidden--and profoundly disturbing--relationships between visitors to the library. These include a celebrated mystery writer who has donated his papers to the library's crime fiction collection, that writer's missing daughter, a New York society woman with a hidden past, and one of Ambler's colleagues at the world-famous library. Those shocking revelations lead inexorably to the tragic and violent events that follow.
