Edited by Otto Penzler

A New Limited Edition

In June, Random House, under its Vintage Books imprint, will publish a trade paperback edition of this important new anthology. It is, believe it or not, the first anthology of original espionage fiction ever published!

Agents of Treachery contains 14 never-before-published stories by many of the world’s best-selling and most distinguished writers of international intrigue, with stories by Lee Child, Dan Fesperman, Joseph Finder, James Grady, Stephen Hunter, Andrew Klavan, John Lawton, Gayle Lynds, Charles McCarry, David Morrell, Stella Rimington, Olen Steinhauer, John Weisman and Robert Wilson.

In April, The Mysterious Bookshop will publish a beautiful limited edition signed by all contributors. Like The Lineup, the first limited edition we published, it will have marbled boards, a leather spine, and will be limited to 250 copies at $150.00 each. In addition, there will be 26 lettered copies at $275.00. This very large (448-page) collection will be the only hardcover edition, preceding the trade edition by more than a month.

We urge you to reserve your copy of this very exciting book now. We had to disappoint many of our customers when The Lineup sold out. You will not be charged until the book is shipped to you. Because of the high quality of the paper and other materials used in the production of this deluxe edition, it is unusually heavy, so shipping will be charged at $10.00 per copy.

The Serialist

First novel. A paperback original.

Drink the Tea

Winner of SMP/PWA Best First Private Eye Novel.

Refreshments will be served.


The Odds by Kathleen George is her latest thriller set on the mean streets of Pittsburgh. $24.94


Last June, we offered signed first editions of The Information Officer by Mark Mills. This UK thriller, set on the island of Malta during WWII, quickly sold out and we are unable to get more.

The US edition has just been published and received a rave review from Marilyn Stasio in last week’s New York Times Book Review. Ms. Stasio, who is one of the foremost crime novel critics in this country, is not given hyperbole, but I was particularly struck by her use of the words "breathtaking thriller." We have US first editions. $25.00


We have a new T-Shirt. A company which puts out t-shirts showing the covers of "your favorite books" has one suitable for us: The Hound of the Baskervilles by A. Conan Doyle. Price 6/-. George Newnes Ltd. Taken from 1902 first edition. In Aqua (or is it Teal?). We have a variety of sizes up to XXL. $24.95
