Across the street from Brazos Bookstore lies another venerable Houston institution: Murder by the Book, the city’s best purveyors of mystery and detective fiction. Contemporary novelist Susanna Gregory—best known for her protagonist Matthew Bartholomew, a 14th-century Cambridge-based investigator—even inadvertently named one of her most recent medieval mysteries after the shop.
