Hidden inside an alley off Taipei Chien-Cheng Circle along Nanjing West Road are several bookstores, and the one that catches the most attention is "Murder Ink" - the first independent bookstore in Taiwan to specialize in crime, detective, and spy novels. The bookstore is decorated with all things detective, from a comprehensive collection of crime novels to symbolic items such as Sherlock Holmes’ pipe, magnifying glass, the globe, telegraph and a number of other things that take you straight into detective stories. Murder Ink’s distinctive settings have also attracted film crews to make short films of detective themes. Apart from the store decorations, the owner himself has a story that is as interesting as the novels he sells.
