Not easy enough, evidently... It's from the fourth book of a quadrilogy, which is nowadays released as a single volume.

The Candle in the Wind, fourth of the five parts of The Once and Future King by T.H. White, and the final of the four parts that come bundled together (as The Book of Merlyn was released posthumously and is traditionally released as a separate volume)?

I think I killed it or something. Um... I'll just pass my turn as I've not read enough books lately to be able to come up with anything that's not extremely easily googlable.

That's easily from Glen Cook's Garrett P.I. series. Probably the first book. That would be "Sweet Silver Blues".

This is probably wrong, but...

Isaac Asimov's Foundation trilogy?

"Great news, old mouse!
It's all falling into place. You're registered at the clinic as Torvin L. Pulmix. Arriving on the late train tonight. The Last Resort limo will meet you at the station. You're a linoleum dealer from Couver. It's downstate in the hill country near the border. You've come to lose weight and recover from a nervous condition. You'll need a suitcase and new clothes. So go shopping this afternoon.
I'll call tonight with more details.
Pup"

edit: That was from "Time Stops For No Mouse" by Michael Hoeye. It is part of the Hermux Tantamoq series.

Sorry to drag up old responses, but I believe it was two sequels and two prequels. Then three outside sequels to the prequels. (if that makes any sense).

Hmm, I thought Foundations Edge was a prequel, probably could have researched it a bit more.

And I didn't count the third party additions.

For those of you who didn't know, Robert Jordan died last month. But there is good news, there will still be a book #12. It survived in the form of computer files and recorded oral conversations.

To Kill a Mockingbird. Superb book.

"I've watched through his eyes, I've listened through his ears, and I tell you, he's the one. Or at least, as close as we're going to get." - try this one.
