Don't you mean MURDER Ink? I used to hit that shop every time I was in NYC. It, and Carol Brener, turned me on to a lot of great hardboiled authors. Ironic that Otto Penzler's Mysterious Bookshop stood in for it in a made-for-TV movie.

Wynn also edited the great Murder Ink anthology, published in 1977, which uses the term cozy as a classfifaction.
