Excellent, wide ranging selection of mysteries. Frances is very knowledgeable and helpful for those just beginning to explore the genre and for those seasoned collectors looking for an elusive edition. First rate store and a must-visit destination.

If you like a good detective story or crime story, stop. This store has it all. I bought two excellent books and I haven't put them down yet. If you like Philip Marlowe or Sam Spade just ask. You won't be disappointed. Very pleasant staff with very helpful merchant neighbors. Good prices for old classics. Definitely my go to book store in Victoria. Will order by phone as I'm out of town.
