Although an interesting premise, the characters were not likable enough to invest the time in reading this book.

A clever mystery for word nerds. Clues to a decades-old crime are hidden in the dusty files of a dictionary publisher. Main characters Billy and Mona must piece them together bit by bit to discover just what happened -- and to whom. Well-written and well-plotted.

The world of the lexicographers is an interesting setting for this novel and the clues to a mystery found in the definitions of the words is a unique device. Although the central character Billy was interesting and one had the sense that he had a secret, Mona was not as likeable a character. The Novel was also slow moving at times.
