Welcome to Ben McNally Books

Dear Friends;

We'll be closed for the coming long weekend, from Saturday, August 2nd through Monday, August 4th. We'll be back, business as usual, on the 5th. Happy Simcoe Day!

We hope that you are as pleased about the arrival of summer as we are. It's the time for gathering a batch of books to keep piled close at hand for those wonderful stretches of idleness, indoors or out. If you need some help picking your summer reading, drop by and talk to us.

On a separate note, it appears that we're supposed to do something about our mailing lists to comply with anti-spam legislation. Since we have never added anyone to the mailing lists unless they expressly asked us to do so, we think we're clear with the legislation. Once we figure out how to let you unsubscribe with ease we'll send you something.

Please let us know if you don't want to receive our admittedly sporadic e-mails any longer.

Monday-Friday 10-6, Saturday (except long weekends) 11-5. Closed Sunday.

The Bay Street bus stops at our door.

The (Complete) Story of a Crime

Free Falling. As If In a Dream

by Leif G.W. Persson


With the publication this month of Free Falling, As If In a Dream English speaking readers can finally read, in its entirety, one of the most ambitious literary police procedurals ever crafted.
This is a fictionalized account of the assassination of Swedish Prime Minister Olaf Palme and the subsequent bungled and compromised investigation into it, told from inside the Swedish Police Services.
