The Independent Mystery Booksellers Association list of 100 favorite mysteries of the 20th century represents the accumulated wisdom of the most knowledgeable people in the business. These are the books we most enjoy, the books we present to our ...
customers over and over again, and the books that we ourselves return to when we want to visit with cherished friends.
In this book, we journey through our list of 100, with essays contributed by bookselles across the United States and Canada. The book also features individual booksellers' lists of titles that did not make the list of 100 but should have, insights about mysteries and what our favorites mean to us, a directory of independent booksellers specializing in mysteries and, finally, a shopping list with current publication information about our 100 favorites.
A late addition to this season's publishing schedule, 100 Favorite Mysteries of the Century is IMBA's holiday gift to our friends in the mystery community.
