HISTORICAL MYSTERY FICTION - NEWEST ADDITIONS AS OF 04/20/2021



When it seems like the World has turned upside down, it's time to turn off the tv, put the phone down and turn to the printed word for a chance to read up on history, or lose yourself in a good mystery where mayhem and madness are resolved by the last chapter.

With most of us done with binge watching whatever streaming source to which you subscribe, there's never been a better time to read. Bookstores are re-opening and you can once again browse for new titles. Remember, your local bookstore staff are great resources as are your local librarians and many bookstores and libraries are offering curbside service. I encourage you to take advantage of that.

But enough nattering. Books! Go! Read!
