Roger Mifflin is the somewhat eccentric proprietor of The Haunted Bookshop, a second-hand bookstore in Brooklyn that is “haunted by the ghosts of all great literature.” Beginning with the arrival of a young advertising man and the mysterious disappearance of a certain volume from the shelves of the bookshop, a lively and often humorous tale of intrigue unfolds, generously sprinkled with liberal doses of Roger’s unique philosophy on literature and book selling.



A fantastic jaunt through Prohibition era New York. A great read for any literature lovers! If you liked "Mr Penumbra's 24 hour bookstore", you'll love this book.


Started off a bit slow, but picked up and took off! Very fun book although it took a turn at the end that I had not been expecting. Enjoyable read!
