Paige Turner (JR Hartley’s agent)
Smart and presentable, but very superior and patronising, Paige knows the book world well and always backs a winner.
Seymour Heathens (Vicar)
Never without his dog collar, Seymour is carefully enunciated, quietly spoken and often found in the religious section researching for his sermons.
Lotta Hushes (Librarian)
Carefully groomed and very stern, Lotta operates a zero tolerance policy in the library. Any rabble-rousing is met with a harsh “Shh!”
Rex Tuff (Juvenile delinquent)
A poor reader, Rex is often found larking about in the children’s section. He rarely has his head in a book, preferring to use the computer terminal or just generally make a nuisance of himself.
Wanda Lust (Backpacker)
Independent and an avid reader of Lonely Planet guides, Wanda is often found in the travel section researching in preparation for her next holiday.
Dee Major (Music teacher)
With an artistic temperament and an extremely strong voice, Dee enjoys reading about the composers she favours in her music lessons, thus ensuring she accurately reflects their personality when performing their pieces.
Archie Ologie (Local historian)
With his stuffy attire often as dusty as the tomes he pulls from the shelves, Archie is a pedant for factual accuracy.
Ivor Spade (Keen gardener)
Earthy and strong, Ivor knows everything there is to know about the local growing conditions and has been working the land his entire life.
Whatever happens this evening, the inspector will always get his man (or woman). The question is will any of the other library patrons be able to solve the case first?
