Come here to investigate new and used whodunits.. In Short This charming, garden-level bookstore is known for inviting in the mystery masters. Snapshots of past signers fill what little space isn't occupied by books: Nevada Barr, Ed McBain, Sara Paretsky, and more. Special shelves spotlight signed copies, books by local writers, Sherlockiana and facsimile first editions. A small children's section is tucked next to the used paperbacks and a knowledgeable staff will help with any decision-making process.
