Teaser Tuesdays: Booked To Die

Didn't get much reading done last week, so I've still got the same books going. And since I've already teased from those, this week I'm taking my teaser lines from one of the books I enjoyed several years ago, John Dunning's Booked To Die. It's the first in his series of mystery novels centering around former homicide-detective turned rare book dealer, Cliff Janeway. In this snippet we have Janeway talking about his fellow "bookscouts":
Book dealers are like everyone else: they come in all sizes and shapes and have the same hangups that you see in a squad room or on an assembly line.... They are usually a cut or two smarter than the average Joe.... Some of them, though, are definitely crazy. (p.40, paperback)
Well now, I suppose the same could be said of book bloggers, couldn't it?
