Welcome to the next chapter of Murder by the Book, Portland Oregon’s mystery bookstore. Our brick and mortar store closed in April of 2013, but our website continues in abbreviated form.

Rest assured that MBTB will continue to provide news, reviews, and information about things mysterious. We are looking forward to continuing the sense of community that was created over the years at Murder by the Book and welcome your ideas and suggestions. It wouldn't be the same without you.


Our monthly newsletter and upcoming books list have been discontinued. Thank you to all of our loyal subscribers over the years.
