This is the first blog from The Mysterious Bookshop. We are going to be posting information about our store, our books, our authors, so if you're a mystery fan, you'll want to subscribe!
News of the Day
Ian Rankin broke our hearts a couple of years ago when he said he was phasing out his Rebus character after ten books. But his new book, DOORS OPEN, is coming to us from the U.K. in October. We don't know the plot yet, and we don't care. We will have signed copies!
Dick Francis has written another mystery with his son, Felix. SILKS will be published in the U.K. in September. Don't expect signed copies.
We're also looking forward to Dennis Lehane's new book, THE GIVEN DAY. We'll have signed copies of that too. I'm hoping it will be a better book than Shutter Island (my post. my opinion). That was a real disappointment!!

About our Mysterious Profiles?
For the last 18 months, authors have been writing profiles of their series character exclusively for the Bookshop. We have limited the numbered copies to 100 and the lettered to 26 (duh!). They are signed and cost $60 and $100 respectively. But if you order ANYTHING from the bookstore you will receive that month's profile in paperback - absolutely free!
So far we have profiles from: Anne Perry, Laura Lippman, Robert B. Parker (sold out in hardcover), Michael Connelly (sold out in hardcover), Colin Dexter, Lee Child, Robert Crais, Ian Rankin, Jeffery Deaver, Ken Bruen, Carol O'Connell, Stephen Hunter, John Lescroart, John Harvey, Faye Kellerman, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, Ridley Pearson, David Morrell, and John Connolly.
