We Only Carry Mysteries .... But We Can Order Almost Anything!

 

Bill's 2012 Best List

Colin Dexter, Last Bus for Woodstock. My first experience (gasp) with this well-established writer whom no mystery reader should overlook. Where have I been?
Book List

Trapeze (Paperback)

$15.95
ISBN-13: 9781590515273
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 days
Published: Other Press, 5/2012
International intrigue based on fact. In WWII, a group of British women were arduously trained and parachuted into France to act as spies and saboteurs. We follow a fictional example. Good story, fine writing. An excellent choice for a book club.

Jack 1939 (Hardcover)

$26.95
ISBN-13: 9781594487194
Availability: Special Order - Subject to Availability
Published: Riverhead Hardcover, 7/2012
Probably not based on fact, but a great idea. In 1939 President Roosevelt calls on young Jack Kennedy to be his undercover informant in Europe. Another great book club candidate (the book, not the informant).

Published: Minotaur Books, 8/2012
First novel, traditional mystery set in West Virginia. Hopefully there will be many more. While we're selecting for book clubs, let's include this!

The Last Policeman (Paperback)

$14.95
ISBN-13: 9781594745768
Availability: Special Order - Subject to Availability
Published: Quirk Books, 7/2012
An asteroid is expected to devastate the Earth imminently. But a new police officer is given his first murder case, and he's going to solve it, end-of-the-world or not. Said to be second book in a trilogy; I hope he survives #3.

The Catalyst (Mass Market Paperback)

Published: Pocket Books, 11/2011
My first experience with this relatively new local author of fast-paced thrillers. The protagonist here is a grad student, a somewhat under-represented population in crime fiction. A great read.
