    If you've ever dreamed of owning or simply working in a great bookstore and you also like mysterysuspense then there is a good chance you will enjoy this book The plot works and the protagonist is interesting but most of all I thoroughly enjoyed the witty repartee not only the literary puns but also the philosophical discussions

    Very well written and inventive According to Their Deeds is a professedly Christian book but it is not preachyIt is a fascinating look at the world of antiues especially of antiue books but these books are also involved in the corrupt world of Washington DC the inhabitants of which we often deem DCversAuthor Robertson is dealing with some very serious subjects but he manages a freuently light even humorous touchFor example when his protagonist wonders why a person particularly selected a tome by philosopher John Locke well prepare to groan at least a littleI looked up the author here at Goodreads and see he has almost a dozen titles and I want to read at least most of themNo obscenity no vulgarity but an inventive and engrossing story in Deeds gives me hope for his other work

    This book was AWESOME Very colorful characters and such an interesting story line To me though it is set in modern times it feels like a step back in time like an old movie which makes it almost timeless Take the time to read this You won't regret it

    According to Their Deeds by Paul Robertson is an unexpected delight disguised as a political thrillermysterious book uest Charles Beale is uite content with his life as a rare book store owner in Alexandria Virginia Married to his soulmate Dorothy and buying and selling books that inspire his soul life has settled into a comfortable rhythm even with the addition of a part time worker named Angelo who is doing his probation working at the store After the death of Charles' friend Derek he purchases back the antiue books on philosophy that Derek had purchased over the years He discovers Derek had a hidden life built on profiting from the secrets of others and Charles determines what to do with this knowledge as well as discover who really murdered Derek and why Most books with this plot as a set up would uickly spiral into car chases gunfights and treks across the world Robertson instead turns the entire genre on its head with this uiet and incredibly intelligent mystery Charles' method of investigation involves enigmatic conversations with the many suspects and much of the book is simply conversations Charles is polite and the definition of a good man The secrets he discovers weigh heavily on his heart as he tries to determine whether to administer justice or mercy As a reader I fell in love with the subtle rhythm of the book along with discerning the truth It's a rare gem in a cluttered genre and I hope that Robertson isn't finished with Charles and Dorothy I would love a seuel

    When I reuested According to Their Deeds I didn't realize it was from a Christian publisher I wouldn't have read this book if I had so I'm glad I didn't Deeds is not overtly Christian in nature It strikes me as fiction for Christians who just want to avoid sex and profanity There is of course a moral to the story but it isn't rammed down the reader's throat There is a subtlety that I appreciated But what about the story you ask The main character is a rare book dealer who becomes involved in a mystery following the death of a long time client The story is well structured and keeps you in suspense to the very end I'm a sucker for mysteries and books with a book connection so I enjoyed the story The political element was an added bonus Overall I would recommend According to Their Deeds to those looking for a light uick read who share my bent towards book related mystery It isn't the best mystery novel I've ever read but it kept me entertained and I think it will keep you entertained as wellhttpiubookgirlblogspotcom20100

    The story is about the proprietor of an antiue bookstore who investigates the murder of one of his friends It is as much about his moral dilemma whether to act for justice or for mercy as it is about the solving the mystery Rather than slowly building the plot ambles along until POW surprise and tragedy strikeThe writing style is either bothersome or brilliant First of all be prepared for hundreds of puns and wordplays I enjoyed them but if you dislike puns Second the writing is in the foreground; it's impossible to ignore the writing and fully enter the story For a pop book that's a defect but on the other hand it's fully expected of a Steinbeck or a Faulkner The author experiments with descriptions of particular themes; watch for the descriptions of the wind of Dorothy the protagonist's wife and of different kinds of peace and silenceThis book contains some of the best descriptions of romance I've encountered and the romance is between the protagonist and his wife totally G rated The book has a very low key Christian subtext

    According to Their Deeds is one of those fun books that touches a lot of genres and I think will appeal to a lot of readers It's got suspense with a light hearted mystery feel it has a bit of a literary uality with a good deal of humor and it makes you think about how far mercy and justice should goThe main character Charles runs a rare book bookshop in Alexandria Virginia and he stumbles upon some secret information about Washington DC movers and shakers when he buys back rare books he'd sold a now deceased client While he runs his shop with the help of his lovely wife he begins to talk to the people listed in the papers amazed at how easily his client's name opens doors

    Christian literature is improving The mystery was compelling Our hero is the owner of a rare books store in Alexandria VA outside of Washington DC He purchases a book collection at auction and discovers secrets in one of the volumes that connects to the Justice DepartmentI loved the banter between Charles the store owner and his staff Puns on the classics I also loved the relationship he has with his wife Dorothy It is clean and thought provoking I hope this is the first in a series

    This book was very hard to get into I almost gave up the first fifty pages but something after that held my interest This book is very different from a lot of books that I read I can understand why many people think that it is boring because of the plays on words and dry humor It did make the point that the author was getting to but I found that for a suspense it was not very suspenseful I did enjoy the book because it was thought provoking It you want a nice light read this is not what you are looking for

    The conversation style of the book was difficult to follow I often didn't know exactly who was speaking Wish the author had used less of that because the descriptions of surroundings that were given were well writtenwould've liked of them I did LOVE all of the talk of books woven into the plot I also really liked the main character and his wife Definitely liked the book but can't say that I loved it
