It’s probably an understatement to say that life’s been strange. Everyone is spending a lot more time indoors and at home, but the good news is that nothing passes the time like a good, page-turning mystery. You may not be able to browse our shelves, but you can still find recommendations from the very best. Here are some of our booksellers' very favorite mystery/thriller titles.
Below, find some recommendations from veteran Bookseller Nick (steward of the Mystery shelves), Bookseller Jordan (combining her eye for glamour and flare with a little bit of murder); and Head Buyer Alie (queen of the heart-racing book picks)!
That’s all for now, but stay tuned here and across our social media accounts for daily updates and book recs. We’re still here—just at a safe social distance :)
"Finally back in print! One of my all time favorites! The South - a young boy - a mysterious man - and a gruesome murder.
No one does it quite as well as Joe R. Landsdale." -- Alie
The Ice Princess
River of Darkness
"Picture old school spy story a la Alan Furst or Robert Ludlum. Set it in the 21st century. Add a dash of glamour. A touch of romantic intrigue.
THEN ADD THE BLACK WIDOW (or her non Marvel universe alter-ego)." -- Jordan
