  I am trying to search a book with an "  's " in the title.  The search apparently won't take apostrophes as it keeps deleting it then subsituting a space then adding the s. I have tried the search just by leaving out the ' too. I have tried adding the series name in the 'key words'  area but to no avail. It also doesn't seem to recognize the book by the Author's name (Lincoln Child), but the problem is it was written by Child and Preston, but I don't think I can use 2 author names in the blank either to do a  search.

Try Keyword - Preston

Author - Child

Title  - 's

This search just found quite a few but I didn't know which title you were looking for.
