Each year, for the past 17 years, Otto Penzler has commissioned an original story set during the Christmas season by a leading mystery writer, with some of the action taking place in The Mysterious Bookshop in New York City. These stories were then produced as pamphlets, 1,000 copies, and given to customers of the book store as a Christmas present. Now, all of these stories have been collected in one volume - Christmas at The Mysterious Bookshop. Some of these stories are humorous, others suspenseful, and still others tales of pure detection. This charming collection is a perfect Christmas gift, appropriate for all ages and tastes. Buy your copy of this special holiday book NOW!
NEXT EVENT: Monday, November 15th, 6:30-8:30pm. Its been over ten years since the last Kenzie and Gennaro novel from Dennis Lehane. And even though were all fans of Shutter Island and The Given Day, were doubly happy that he has decided to give us another installment in the series. Moonlight Mile (Morrow, $26.99) picks up the threads of an old case and sets PIs Patrick Kenzie and Angie Gennaro in search of a missing girl. But Patrick must confront his own demons before the case can be solved. This is the authors only New York appearance!
