Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references.
Summary, etc.: Unrepentant book thief John Charles Gilkey has stolen a fortune in rare books from around the county. Yet unlike most thieves, who steal for profit, Gilkey steals for the love of the books. Perhaps equally obsessive, though, is Ken Sanders, the self-appointed "bibliodick" driven to catch him. Sanders, a lifelong rare book collector and dealer turned amateur detective, will stop at nothing to catch the thief plaguing his trade.
Subject: Gilkey, John, 1968-
Sanders, Ken, 1951-
