Summary :

Narrated by Alexander Short, a stylish young reference librarian of arcane interests. His job in jeopardy and his marriage becoming unhinged, Alexander finds odd solace in the notebook he keeps tethered to his jacket. Enter the improbably named Henry James Jesson III, a bibliophile who hires the librarian for some after-hours research. The task: to render whole an incomplete cabinet of wonders chronicling the life of a mysterious eighteenth-century inventor. As the investigation heats up, Alexander realizes there are many more secrets lurking in Jesson's cloistered world than those found inside his elegant Manhattan townhouse.
