   Looking for a good mystery book? The Mysterious Bookshop carries the greatest collection of mystery, crime, and detective books. The cozy little bookshop has the distinction of being “One of the oldest mystery specialist book stores in America” and is celebrating its 28th year thrilling mystery readers. They also have a great collection of signed modern first editions to browse through. Sherlock Holmes fans you will be impressed with the choices you’ll find in this fantastic bookshop. The Mysterious Bookshop has a great website as well with information on upcoming events and six different monthly club options you can join to have the opportunity to purchase a signed first edition of a new mystery, crime, or detective book. In addition to the extensive collection of books, the bookshop has an exact replica of the famed Maltese Falcon from the classic 1941 film starring Humphrey Bogart. I’ve seen this replica in the store and it’s really exact.
   The Mysterious bookshop is located between Broadway & Church Street in the Tribeca area and is open seven days a week from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm.
