The Poisoned Pen Bookstore, founded in 1989, is an independent fiction bookstore specializing in mysteries. Discover with us current and classic works of mystery, thrillers, historical and literary fiction, and literature of the American Southwest, much of it offered in Autographed First Editions and imports. Our Book Clubs bring exciting new work right to your door. 

Located in Old Town Scottsdale’s Art District, The Pen is celebrated for its schedule of author and literary events and its global outreach through webcasts and worldwide shipping.

Please sign up for our Enews, read our Booknews, attend our events – generally programs of an hour or more with Q&A and book signing – at the bookstore or at the Arizona Biltmore Resort or other nearby locations. Most are free but we do request that any books you wish to have signed be purchased from The Poisoned Pen.
