In each box you will receive:
• A newsletter which highlights upcoming releases, personal favourite reads, puzzles and more!

• Book/Mystery related goodies, such as notebooks, tote bags, coasters and more! (These will change from month to month, so subscribers won’t receive the same gifts twice and examples of these gifts can be seen in the pictures).

Important Information!!
Subscriptions come in 1 month, 3 month, 6 month and 12 month packages. The longer the subscription the less you pay per box. 12 Month subscribers get one of their boxes for free! The prices for the 3 month, 6 months and 12 month packages also include the additional P&P for sending the boxes after the first month. If you are buying 1 month subscriptions for more than one person, such as for 3 people, feel free to select the 3 month package (with the savings) and then message me that they are one month boxes for separate individuals.

Feedback
My aim is that all my customers will be happy with the box they receive, but if you have any difficulties or problems please do contact me, to give me the opportunity to rectify anything I can before leaving feedback.

About the Seller

I have been a lover of vintage crime fiction for a number of years. There is something irresistible about the quirky, genteel and amateur sleuth, as well as the body in the library of course. This passion has led to me writing my own blog: www.crossexaminingcrime.com, where I frequently review older mystery novels and I also produce articles for magazines such as Mystery Scene and CADs. It is my enthusiasm for this genre that has inspired me to set up this venture and I hope it will appeal to both readers who are new to or diehard fans of a good vintage mystery.

I bought this as a birthday present for my mum and she loved it! The customer service is amazing - great communication, and I asked for a kind of bespoke arrangement (by suggesting what my mum likes and letting the vendor put something suitable together - I had no idea exactly what would be included in the box and it was spot on!) A fantastic gift, superb service, what more can I say?!

I couldn’t believe how great my box was when it arrived! It exceeded all of my expectations. It came with a newsletter, a postcard, 2 vintage mystery books, a true crime book, a keychain, a game, hot chocolate (at my request instead of coffee) and a chocolate bar. Absolutely incredible! Can’t wait for my next box!

Great box and great service. Kate tailors to very specific niches within the classic crime genre, so each subscriber’s box is very personalized. The games, puzzles and add-ons are quality items. Each box is an adventure! Signed up for a second year after receiving only two boxes of my first year subscription. If you like classic mystery books and a good beverage, this is the box you have been searching for.

I love the different books, I've not heard of either of the wrapped ones, and the bonus book as part of the extras has been very interesting. It's great to have the option for hot chocolate in the place of coffee. I love the finishing touches like the stamps of the detective on the paper, the wrapping for each book with an evidence tag with information on the book and the little extras, the chocolate didn't last long. I'm definitely tempted to go for a longer subscription to build up my classic crime books.
