Mystery Book Clubs

Our Mystery Book Clubs are a great way to get acquainted with new authors recommended by Murder By the Book.  We have 3 book clubs: Cozy, Firsts (first book by a new mystery author), and Hardboiled.  You may join any or ALL of them.We have been in business since 1980!

You can also email us now with the information requested below.


  • Approximately every quarter you will automatically receive a mystery book (or multiple if you join more than one of the book clubs) from Murder by the Book. The book(s) will be charged to your credit card.
  • We do our best to find something new or different, or both. For example, the winter selection was a book entitled Crime In Rhyme, done by Simon Brett especially for a small British press. It was signed and dated by the author.
  • Books will be first editions.
  • The cost of each book will be full cover price which is generally between $23.00 and $27.00.
  • Books will be shipped media mail.
