display_description Brooklyn Wainwright is a skilled surgeon. Her patients might smell like mold and have spines of leather, but no ailing book is going to die on her watch. The same can't be said of Abraham Karastovsky, Brooklyn's friend and former employer, who she finds lying in a pool of his own blood. With his final breath, Abraham leaves Broklyn a cryptic message, "Remember the devil," and smiles as she takes possession of his priceless and supposedly cursed copy of Goethe's Faust. Suddenly, Brooklyn finds herself accused of murder and theft.
