Kate Carlisle has written the greatest bibliophile mystery of all time, The Lies that Bind.
I particularly coveted a leather-handled set of Jeff Peachey knives. The brilliant bookbinder and craftsman had created a set of cryogenic steel-bladed knives that were hand-honed to surgical percision and beautifully beveled to work with the thinnest calfskin…’Peachey is a genius,’ I murmured, nodding. (p. 251)
Mighty fine writing.

Well you didn’t waste any time readiing… Haven’t even gotten to that part yet. So when do you offer Brooklyn Wainright starter sets? 😉
Yea, I just skimmed it looking for the scene about my tools. Maybe a limited edition Brooklyn Wainright knife?
Wrapped in crime scene tape with (faux) blood on it?
Inspired me to buy the book!
The first book in this series also mentioned Peachey knives – how modest of you not to mention it…….
Modest??? I wrote a whole post about it:
And as my wife put it, any book that would call Peachey a genius is most definitely a work of fiction….
Finally finished it – had me laughing like crazy there at the end. Good for you! Has it boosted sales? Please put me on the list for the Brooklyn special edition knife. Wasn’t I the one who pointed out the first book to you after all? Will it be cryogenic or ergonomic? Maybe both?
Maybe the first bookbinding tools product placement? I look forward to the movies!
IF there were a movie, which I seriously doubt, for a number of reasons…, they would just use a piece of painted plastic???
I like Peters idea of the police tape for a handle, or at least an outer sheath. And I do have some kind of rubber stuff that you dip to coat a handle– maybe I could find some in red. Hummm…
A colleagues husband is a county sheriff here and will be giving me a few yards of really official crime scene tape…
