Summary
Cliff Janeway, a Denver ex-cop-turned bookman, buys a signed first edition of a travelogue written by legendary explorer Richard Francis Burton. He is then confronted by an elderly woman, who claims that the book rightfully belongs to her and is convinced that crooked dealers swindled her family out of a large collection of works by the famous adventurer. After her sudden death, Janeway vows to restore the collection, but he finds himself up against murderous thugs, desperate authors, and unscrupulous businessmen

The bookman's promise

Summary
Cliff Janeway is back! The bookman's promise marks the eagerly awaited return of the award-winning crime novel series that helped the nation turn on to first-edition book collecting. The bookman's promise juxtaposes past and present as Denver ex-cop and bookman Cliff Janeway searches for a book and a killer. The quest begins when an old woman -- Josephine Gallant -- learns that Janeway recently bought at auction a signed first edition by the legendary nineteenth-century explorer, Richard Francis Burton. The book is a true classic, telling of Burton's journey -- disguised as a Muslim -- to the forbidden holy cities of Mecca and Medina. The Boston auction house was a distinguished and trustworthy firm, but provenance is sometimes murky and Josephine says it is rightfully hers. She believes that her grandfather had a fabulous collection of Burton material, but everything mysteriously disappeared shortly after her grandfather's death. With little time left in her own life, Josephine begs for Janeway's promise: he must find her grandfather's collection. When a friend is murdered, Janeway must find the answers. Someone today is willing to kill to keep the secrets of the past
