Hickey & McGee Booksellers

WE ARE FOLKS OF MODEST MEANS who love to read and so are appalled at the cost of hardback and trade paper books. Ebooks of course are cheaper, and by shopping around we can find free ebooks, but most of them are only free because the author bought their inclusion in a marketing platform. Some are good books. Most are not.

ALL BOOKS FROM H & McG ARE GOOD ONES, which come highly recommended by us. And, since our goal is to see that they get read, we either give them away or sell them for very little.

Our mission is to save avid readers about $1000 year.

By the way, ALL OUR PRICES INCLUDE TAX, and to save even more, you can buy a few or a set and therby save on shipping.


Our featured procucts are special bargains, free or discounted, some for a limited time. Wisdom suggests you don't wait.

The Hickey Family crime story

the HICKEY FAMILY crime novels follow Tom, son of a missing father and deranged mother, loving brother to a splendid and wild sister, from his first criminal investigation in 1926 and on through his turbulent century. Along the way, while twice marrying, twice fathering, and once adopting, and so creating a most remarkable family, he confronts and overcomes a host of powerful adversaries.

The books have been rightfully tagged hard-boiled, noir, thrillers, suspense, and of course historical. They are also called literary, for the exquisite language and honest drama, and Christian by some, as the mysteries they encounter are not always worldly.

Each of the books is a riveting story of crime, heroics, and all sorts of love. Together, they offer a vivid and panoramic vision of California as it transforms from a frontier to the most influential place on earth.

“Tom Hickey is one of detective fiction’s most original and intriguing creations.” San Francisco Chronicle

“Elegant, eloquent, and elegiac, Kuhlken’s novels sing an old melody, at the same time haunting and beautiful.” Novelist Don Winslow

Readers are encouraged to start with any book in the collection, as each was created to stand alone.
