Dr. Asimov, working under instructions from his publisher (doubtless of his own devising), transforms a real life bookselling convention into a murder mystery -- and writes himself into a prominent role in the book (in effect, he is ghostwriting the novel for himself).
"When the protege of writer Darius Just suddenly turns up murdered at the celebrated annual publishing convention, chaos and suspense sweep the autographing sessions, the buffet tables, the bars, and the famed hospitality suites.
"Darius is certain he can discover the murderer -- if the murderer doesn't find him first . . . "; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
