The Fragments by Toni Jordan – Book Review

Caddie Walker is a bookseller working in Brisbane in the eighties who has a passion for the work of Inga Karlssen, an author from the thirties who wrote one book and then died in a mysterious fire at the publishers where her second book was about to be printer, taking this tome with her. Or did it? It’s a mystery that’s haunted the book world and after meeting a mysterious stranger outside an exhibition of fragments of Kalrssen’s work, Caddie decides to investigate for herself.

I found this engaging. It seems unlikely that she could possibly uncover anything that hadn’t already existed, but this was in a world prior to the internet or mobile phones, when it could be a mystery tip that reveals things. And I loved it.
