JUST IN!

-offered here exclusively to our customers for a limited time-

Warm up with a Good Mystery

We are offering the following selection of Mystery titles to our customers from a batch of recent arrivals. Some are new works by established writers, some are first books by newcomers, and some are previous great titles that almost slipped past us. (Sad to say it can happen to even the most diligent of book sellers.)

However they came to our attention, all are works we think you will enjoy from the hardboiled to the cozy. What better way to spend the cool winter evenings ahead than curled up with one of these fine who-dunits.

ENJOY!
