Is there a searchable site that details novel/fiction plots or storylines? (Important notes below.)

I'm looking for a site that contains summaries of novels—effectively full summaries that are searchable. I found this
previous AskMeFi question, which links to sites that summarize novels in 25 words, but that's not what I'm looking for. Please bear in mind two things: 1) I'm not looking for a list of archetype plots (ie The 36 Dramatic Situations); 2) The blurb on most book store sites like Amazon don't list the full plots, only part of them. Wikipedia often lists summaries but it's impossible, AFAIK, to search just the entries for novels or other types of fiction in isolation.
