Swann Dives In is a mystery that goes deep and rarely lets the reader catch a breath.
Henry Swann’s last case nearly killed him‚ emotionally and physically. Now he’s sworn off his old profession and taken on a steady gig. But climbing stairs to hook poor people up to cable is hard on his knees … and not the kind of connections he’s good at making. So when an opportunity arises to bring order to chaos for a price—his secret pleasure in life—Swann is pulled back in.
The case starts simply‚ with a call to find a burglary suspect who’s gone on the lam. But Swann is soon on the trail of a wealthy lawyer’s rebellious daughter‚ who’s disappeared along with her disreputable boyfriend. Finding the beau leads him into the dangerous midst of cutthroat academics‚ sexy librarians‚ and killer book collectors‚ with a priceless first edition of Tender is the Night the surprising prize along the way.
