"A decades-overdue book puts library director Lindsey Norris hot on the trail of a cold case when she discovers the book was checked out by a schoolteacher on the day she was murdered twenty years ago"-- Provided by publisher. When the Briar Creek Public Library holds its first overdue book amnesty day-- no fines for late returns-- the volume of incoming materials is more than Lindsey and her staff can handle. In a bind, Lindsey drafts the crafternoon ladies to help check in and sort the stacks of books. But one tardy tome catches her attention: a copy of J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye, twenty years past due. When Lindsey looks up the borrower, she's shocked to discover it was a murdered schoolteacher named Candice Whitley, who checked out the novel on the day she was murdered. Could it provide a clue to the decades-old cold case?
