What was great about The Westing Game wasn't necessarily the mystery, but the characters involved in it. It was suspenseful, for sure, but it was fun and at times even funny. Robin Sloan captures that feeling in Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore , a fast-paced and heady mystery that follows a former web designer who suspects there's something more to the bookstore he's taking shifts at. As he delves into analysis with his eclectic friends, he uncovers a world of secret societies, mysterious literati, and a web of technological riddles.
