We buy mystery books and collections of mystery books.

We prefer to buy quality first printings of US and UK titles in excellent condition. We also constantly search to replenish the shelves of our popular out-of-print paperback offerings. We will gladly travel to examine a sizable collection and would be most happy to make you a favorable offer for your book or collection.

If you have questions about books, we can help you answer them. If you wish to sell all or a portion of a mystery book collection, call us at (212) 243-0440 between 2:00pm and 8:00pm weekdays or from 6:00pm to 10:00pm on Saturdays. You may also fax a list of books you wish to sell to (212) 243-4624, or email us at  And of course, US Mail (above).

To help us respond quickly to your calls or mail, please have the following information ready when you get in touch:

- A list of your books including authors, titles, publisher, year of publication, printing status (first printings preferred)

- Condition of book and dustwrapper.

- In case of collections, the general focus such as genre, author(s), time period, Sherlockian, et cetera.
