Ken Bruen - The Book of Virtue

 A young man who has been brutally abused by his father is given his estate. A book. A single book. It was a beautiful book, bound in soft leather with gold leaf trim. On the cover, in faded gold, was the single word, Virtue.Where had the book, or even the idea of a book, come from? His father’s idea of reading never went beyond the sports page.

In the unique, poetic voice of Ken Bruen, one of today’s most brilliantly original crime writers, The Book of Virtue offers mystery, crime, suspense, violence, and humor. 

The book is available in paperback for $6.95. Signed, numbered hardcover copies (limited to 100) are available for $50, and signed, lettered hardcover copies (edition of 26) are available for $100. Use the drop down menu to choose.
