Hooperman Johnson is a tall, bushy-bearded man of few words. He works as a bookstore cop, catching shoplifters in the act. It's a difficult job for a man with a stammer, but somebody's got to do it, because Maxwell's Books is getting ripped off big-time. And, more and more, it looks like the thief works for the store. Set in the summer of 1972, the summer of the Watergate break-in, Hooperman is a bookstore mystery without a murder, but full of plot, oddball characters, laughs -and love, some of it poignant, some of it steamy. Publisher's Weekly Starred Review: "Pleasant and unusually good-natured, this novel from Daniel harkens back to a time when printed books mattered and an independent bookstore could be a social club for passionately eccentric bibliophiles." About the Author: John M. Daniel is a lifelong bibliophile, having worked in eight different bookstores. He has also worked as an editor, ghostwriter, creative writing teacher, and small-press publisher. He is the author of fourteen published books, including the well-reviewed Guy Mallon Mystery Series, and dozens of short stories. He now lives among the redwoods in Humboldt County, on California's North Coast, with Susan Daniel, his wife and partner. They publish mystery fiction under the imprint Perseverance Press (Daniel & Daniel).
One minute, it was an Egyptian cat stature. The next, it was real, live cat with sharp claws. And I have the scratch to prove it! This was one trip to the museum I would never forget.
