Felony and Mayhem’s wonderful site!

I am a huge fan of the wonderful Maggie Topkis, Founder of Felony and Mayhem, a republisher of out of print mysteries, and co-owner of the ‘Partners and Crime‘ bookstore in NYC. I first came across Maggie at a book fair in New York many years ago — my eyes were drawn from across the room to her selection of Margery Allingham books — I had read several of her Campion books, old musty copies acquired at second hand stores and loved them. Here was my chance of adding to my collection! If you like mysteries, especially those with an English setting, I urge you to check out the new Felony and Mayhem site and add a couple of classics to your shopping basket!

p.s. Maggie has also been extremely gracious to me as an author and supplied one of the first reviews of ‘A Bella Street Mystery: The Secret Formula’!
