Criminally Cool

One of the highlights of my first trip to New York City a couple of months back was a chance to go to the Mysterious Bookshop. From the moment I learned of its existence, I wanted to go there eventually. After all, I love bookstores and I love crime fiction. It’s like my personal Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup of shopping, and unlike the candy, I don’t have to worry about the Spawn’s suffering a fatal allergic reaction because of my visit.

Even cooler was the fact that my first visit there was for a panel signing for the launch of In Sunlight Or in Shadow. I definitely felt big-time, and the copy of James Ross’s They Don’t Dance Much that I picked up was both a book I enjoy and a cool souvenir.

In any case, the NYT has a nifty article on the shop, and it’s worth a few minutes of your time. And should you drop by, tell them Mondo sent you.
