R | | Mystery, Thriller
A rare book dealer, while seeking out the last two copies of a demon text, gets drawn into a conspiracy with supernatural overtones.
The name "Dean Corso" is very subtle foreshadowing, in that it contains 9 total letters, implying his central role in the mystery.
It's an impressive collection. You have some very rare editions here. Are you sure you want to sell them all?
Old Man's Son: They're of no use to father. Not anymore. Not since he's been this way. His library was his whole world. Now it's just a painful memory.
When Liana's bodyguard trips while assaulting Corso by the river, the "rocks" underneath him all shift and slide together. It's clearly a mat.
