Best of the Month

To order, visit!

With this subscription, you or your gift recipient will be mailed one new release signed hardcover each month that is chosen by the Murder By The Book staff as one of the very best books that month. There’s no guarantee of sub-genre… We might choose something that is a techno thriller or a ghost story. It could be anything from foreign intrigue to domestic psychological suspense. The only guarantee is that it will be a book that we love, and one that you’ll be able to jump into with no other previous reading required. All books will include a signed bookplate or be signed copies.

Gift subscriptions are possible and recommended! Your subscription will be auto-renewed unless you notify us otherwise. All books will be shipped via media mail. If you are local to Houston, you can choose the slightly-discounted option for local pick-up.
