The Mysterious Bookshop

Forrester, Andrew, The Female Detective

The Female Detective introduces the first professional female detective in British fiction, Mrs Gladden. She uses similar methods to her male counterparts - entering scenes of crime incognito, tracking down killers while trying to conceal her own tracks and her identity from others.


We are devoted to all things mysterious, from hard-boiled hardcovers to pulpy paperbacks, suspected signings and whispers around town.

Located at 58 Warren St in New York City, we are open Monday-Saturday from 11am-7pm. 212.587.1011
