Synopsis: Hooperman Johnson is a tall, bushy-bearded man of few words. He works as a bookstore cop, catching shoplifters in the act. It’s a difficult job for a man with a stammer, but somebody’s got to do it, because Maxwell’s Books is getting ripped off big-time. And, more and more, it looks like the thief works for the store. Set in the summer of 1972, the summer of the Watergate break-in, Hooperman is a bookstore mystery without a murder, but full of plot, oddball characters, laughs —and love, some of it poignant, some of it steamy.

"Pleasant and unusually good-natured, this novel from Daniel harkens back to a time when printed books mattered and an independent bookstore could be a social club for passionately eccentric bibliophiles." —Publishers Weekly starred review.

--The Betz Review for Mysterious Reviews

Hooperman is a delightful story filled with well-drawn characters. There are a lot of flashbacks to Hoop's childhood and how he was taunted by his peers for his speech impediment. Far more of a character study than a whodunit-style mystery, readers will nonetheless be drawn into his investigation of the thefts. The outcome doesn't matter so much as just getting to know this memorable character. Special thanks to guest reviewer Betty of The Betz Review for contributing her review of Hooperman.
