Whenever that happens to me it means that I made a mistake with the manual install. But, if you did what Mrs_Often said, then it should have worked. Can you check that the files are still there in the ".kobo" directory?
The "blow everything away" I was suggesting was a factory reset plus complete removal of the desktop app and data from your PC. Hopefully that will remove the source of the phantom book. If that doesn't fix things, then the only thing left is a faulty device. Maybe the internal memory is corrupt or damaged.
