http://www.fictiondb.com/search/sear...htxt=lee+child
The closest you can get imho is to just create an entry in your menu of "FictionDB", put the url below and manually type in the author/title on the search page when you use it. Well unless someone else finds a way for this website
http://www.fictiondb.com/search/searchresults.htm
- I'd already tried a similar link but yours takes me to the advanced search, which is even better.

Thanks for all your help, especially that bit on how to set up the search urls - that will definitely be handy for later so I'm saving the instructions
