Unrepentant book thief John Charles Gilkey has stolen a fortune in rare books from around the US. Yet unlike most thieves, who steal for profit, Gilkey steals for love - the love of books. Perhaps equally obsessed is Ken Sanders, the self-appointed 'bibliodick' who's driven to catch him. Following this eccentric cat-and-mouse chase with a mixture of suspense, insight and humour, Allison Hoover Bartlett plunges the reader into a rich world of fanatical book lust and considers what it is that makes some people stop at nothing to possess the titles they love.
