The Mysterious Bookshop

Fitzsimmons, Cortland - The Whispering Window

New York, Frederick Stokes, 1936. First edition. During a big sale at a big department store, it's not unusual for shoppers to jockey for position. But when one of the buyers is found dead at her desk,  seventy-five year old Ethel Thomas is on the case as one of the more unusual amateur sleuths you'll run across. Are the mysterious losses suffered by the store lately related to the murder?  Very slight cocking to spine, info pencilled to front endpaper. $35.00.


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
