More Gift Ideas
Need a gift for someone special. Why not make it easy and give them a Poisoned Pen Gift Card.
And Don't Forget about OUR BOOK CLUBS
Too busy to pick out books?
Let us send our selections to your door.
We have a variety of automatic selection book clubs designed to provide you with fresh and exciting books each month in a variety of crime and other ﬁction.
What are the club picks?
The monthly club selections are signed true ﬁrst editions, US or UK.
How does it work?
Each month the club pick is charged to your credit card and shipped to the recipient. If you have other books on order with us, picks will be held and shipped with your other books to reduce shipping costs.
You may resign from a club at any time with the proviso that books already reserved for you will be sent to complete your membership.
How do I join?
To enroll, call, fax, or email us.
Phone: (480) 947-2974
Toll free: (888) 560-9919
FAX: (480) 945-1023
Can I give a club membership as a gift?
Absolutely! A membership is a terriﬁc gift and is longer lasting than say the contents of the Fruit of the Month Club. We have a Mystery of the Month as well as a Modern Firsts Club which works well for the non-mystery reader.
To sign someone up, contact us with the name and shipping address of the recipient and supply your own credit card #. You will be billed for the book and shipping each time a book is sent.
We will send a Gift Certiﬁcate to the recipient to acknowledge the gift.
What Clubs are available?
Or a Christmas Music CD from local sports/newcaster Mike Chamberlain Christmas Collection ($15) and signed copy of God Has a Sense of Humor...for Heaven's Sake ($14.95)
or maybe Mystery Lover's Puzzle Book
Crosswords with clues from your favorite mystery series!
Now you can enjoy both at the same time. Whether you like the humor of Janet Evanovich or the thrill of the chase with John Sandford, do crossword puzzles containing clues about your favorite fictional mystery characters.
Even if you have not read some of these authors, give the puzzles a try and get hooked on a new writer! The brief review for each series should help you with your reading selection. Whether you like cozies, thrillers, historical or legal suspense, pick a new author by mystery type, location, time period or character.
Keep track of the books you have already read by checking them off on the list of titles provided. Save time by not having to search for the next title in the series and save money by not accidentally buying a book you have already read. Other stand-alone mysteries, written by your favorite authors, are also included in order.
So have a little fun, find new authors, stretch those memory muscles or solve the problem of what to get your mystery-reading friends by trying out the Mystery Lover's Puzzle Book.

FROM OUR DESERT SLEUTHS
How Not to Survive the Holidays a guide of original short stories from your Desert Sleuths - Sisters in Crime ($14.95)
"The anthology has a little bit of crime for everyone. Deborah J. Ledford's "A Christmas Tail" is a story for those of us who are cat lovers. There's something sneaky going on in Connie Flynn's story, "There's a Dead Elf in Santa's Workshop." Try Roni Olson's "Relativity," a traditional mystery about a family trapped by a blizzard at Christmas. JoAnne Zeterberg brings us a protective ghost in "The Gift. And, try two favorites, Judy Starbuck's story of a mystery writer who takes her life into her own hands, "A Christmas Stalking," and Merle McCann's "Yule Night," a historical piece set in 1902." -Lesa Holstine
