The Safe Man book description
Like his father before him, Brian Holloway is a safe man. That is, his specialty is opening safes.
Every job is a little mystery, and he has yet to encounter a lock he can’t break or a box he can’t crack.
But the day Holloway gets called in to open a rare, antique safe in a famous author’s library, his skills open a door that should have remained closed.
