About Our Mystery Collection


Our fiction collection is particularly strong in the area of mystery. In fact, it is so good that it was honored with a Raven Award from the Mystery Writers of America in 2000. The collection holds circulating copies of some of the first mystery and detective novels published in Britain and in the United States, as well as all the newest mystery and detective fiction from around the world.
