The first death due to natural causes at the Papyrus Bookstore seems a terribly sad event, but one that will more than likely never reoccur. The second death is viewed as a horrible coincidence. However, after the third death in three days there's no denying that something is going on. Inspector Dejan Lukić and Vera Gavrilovic, co-owner of the bookstore, are determined to find the truth. But this case is not as simple as the involvement of officers of National Security make plain. Can they solve the case before more people die.

From official release/information:

From publisher's website: A series of mysterious deaths in the Papyrus Bookstore brings literature-loving police inspector Dejan Lukic to investigate. Here he meets the attractive owner, Vera Gavrilovic, and learns that the only thing the victims have in common is that in the moments before their deaths they were reading an elusive and unidentified volume - the Last Book.

As the plot thickens and the seemingly causeless deaths multiply, the National Security Agency, a secret apocalyptic sect and an exotic teashop become involved, while Dejan and Vera's growing attachment is threatened by nightmares and ever-encroaching danger...

Is a literary madman on the loose, murdering readers according to the method laid down in The Name of the Rose? In a final race against time, Inspector Lukic must discover the secret of the Last Book and the reason why he feels as though he has already read everything that is happening to him. The extraordinary denouement reveals hidden truths about the clash of realities and the awesome power of the creative imagination.
