Good intentions in Glasgow lead to disastrous results.
Sal and Asanti leave the rest of the Team in the lurch when they jet off to Scotland to attend the funeral of the archivists’ mentor. Something is amiss in the Dear Green Place, however, as the pair land to discover the entire city has become obsessed with a restaurant (which just happens to be owned by the deceased mentor’s only living relative). They beat the crowds to get a table, only to find the fight has just begun and they left their muscle at home.
This episode is brought to you by team-writer Mur Lafferty and explores how magic, like food, is rarely cut and dry.

"Bookburners satisfies my craving for pulpy, demonic chaos with sharp writing, deliciously sinister magic, stellar black humor, and a kick-ass cast. The serialized story perfectly suits a sorcerer’s codex of baddies while the plucky Sal digs for deeper truths in her work with the Black Archives squad."
--Lindsay Smith, author of the Sekret Series
