Christopher Bush & the madness of book prices



I sometimes mention the enterprising Dean Street Press, who kindly send me the occasional ebook for review. I got another one yesterday because they’re bringing out the next batch of crime novels by Christopher Bush. I browsed their titles on Amazon and found Murder at Fenwold, which I quite enjoyed, listed at £1,049.00! I thought it must be a mistake and checked it again today. The same price and there are two copies on eBay, even more expensive. Why? And is this another tulip mania of the book world, where people will buy and get their fingers burnt?
