"Raymond’s eye for telling detail is very fine, as one expects of an accomplished writer, but to this she adds the informing eye of a natural historian of place.”

Bookstore Geek: Big Sleep Books

I came across this St. Louis treasure in the city’s Central West End one recent autumn afternoon.

Big Sleep Books specializes in mysteries and detective books, new and used, and while it’s small, it’s brimming with great books and a staff that knows its stuff. Big Sleep also offers a few rare titles and signed first editions, so it’s a great place for collectors as well as mystery lovers.

Though it’s a cozy little place, Big Sleep does host readings and signings and is a big supporter of local authors, and while visiting the store is the best way to hear about new books and great authors in the genre, the store’s website also links to its favorites.
