She sells books, eats well, and has a very large brain. Criminals fear her.
Meet Beatrice Valentine, a larger-than-life bookshop owner with a penchant for three things in abundance-delicious Italian food, vino, and murder. For decades she has sold used and rare books from her stylish-but-cluttered domain on New York City's legendary Book Row. But when the eccentric antiques-and-books dealer next door is found dead, it's time to put down the cannoli and get to work. Aided by her long-suffering private eye nephew, Aunt Bea launches an investigation using her irrepressible talents for snooping, meddling, and outthinking the police. Pitted against Aunt Bea's brilliant deductions, murderers don't stand a chance.
