book review the club dumas by Arturo Pérez-Reverte. cool dark, atmospheric book about a unscrupulous finder of antique and rare books, who gets in a little over his head when he takes a couple jobs to find out if a manuscript and a book are forgeries. It's an interesting look at the book world and who occupies it -- not quite who you'd think! The book resembles name of the rose in it's slow uncovery of arcane facts, and strange occurences. It perhaps is somewhat marred by its ending, but not enough for me NOT to reccommend it.
