A Dangerous Type Mystery Series


Tucked away on Bygone Alley in Star City, Utah, an old mining mountain town that's become a world renowned ski haven, is a shop called The Rescued Word. Inside, Chester Henry and his adult granddaughter, Clare, rescue all sorts of words - by repairing old books and typewriters and selling every sort of pen and paper imaginable.

They're also pretty good at solving a mystery or two.
