I came across this title while reading up on the early manuscripts of Ernest Hemingway which were lost by his wife Hadley in 1922. In fact, it appears that Hemingway never really forgave her for losing three years of his work. Diane Gilbert Madsen, a mystery writer, uses the potential discovery of these papers some eighty years later as the backdrop for Hunting for Hemingway. This book reads quickly and does keep your interest but is not a great literary piece.
