About

Underneath the Lintel or The Mystery of the Abandoned Trousers

by Glen Berger

a mysterious journey

A librarian finds a 113 year overdue Baedeker’s travel guide in the overnight book return. After checking the records and sending off an angry demand for quick payment of a hefty fine to a P.O. Box in China, the librarian thinks the matter is settled. But, the handwriting in the margins and scraps of paper between the pages hint at a mystery yearning to be solved. And so begins a worldwide hunt that will change the librarian turned detective forever.
