Trying to source a book

I hope this is the right forum, I couldn't find anywhere else that this would seem suitable...

I have been looking for "The Better Mousetrap" by Tom Holt for a while.

I know that Waterstones and WHSmith have it, but in both cases, it is more expensive to buy the E-book than it is to buy the Hardback. I refuse to pay more for a digital copy than a physical copy!

So, could anybody let me know if there is anywhere I might be able to get this elsewhere?

Most of the sites I have checked don't seem to have any Tom Holt available

Thanks in advance...

They are selling it in ePub format. And they are the two biggest ePub sellers right now (BoB a distant third). So I would guess that it will be a while before other stores have it. The publisher might not want to sell in other formats.

You could try writing to the publisher to complain about the price.
