Lance Manley Library Detective; not just your average gumshoe. With a million readers in the naked city, Lance is the man who has to keep them in line. In a tiny alcove, high above the stacks of the International Falls Public Library, a frosted glass door stands waiting for trouble. the word SECURITY is spelled out in black lettering on the glass, but you get the idea that security is the last thing you’ll find beyond the threshold. For on the other side of the glass, sitting behind a battered oak desk, is the cop of cataloguing, the dick of Dewey Decimals, Lance Manley, Library Detective.
