the Cloak & Dagger

A Mystery Bookshop

Intrigue. Mystery. Suspense. Discover the Cloak & Dagger, an independent bookshop catering to mystery lovers.

Located in historic Jugtown district of Princeton, a short walk from Princeton University. The Cloak & Dagger is in a 100 year old colonial revival home renovated to reflect an English style library one might find in an Agatha Christie mystery.

We stock primarily new mystery paperbacks that cover all mystery genres. We also carry mystery gifts and collectibles, mystery audiobooks, videos, puzzles and games. Gift certificates are available.

Whether you are in town visiting friends or family, attending a work conference, shopping at Palmer Square, or have lived here for years, it would be a crime to not stop by and check out one of Princeton's hidden treasures.
