Hi, and thanks for visiting The Bookshop Podcast!

Today I’m in Winnipeg, Canada speaking with Michael Bumsted from Whodunit Mystery Bookstore. Later I’m in London—via Zoom—chatting with Chris Carter, author of the Robert Hunter detective series.

WHODUNIT Mystery Bookstore opened for business in 1994 and in 2007 loyal customers Jack and Wendy Bumsted became the new owners. WHODUNIT is Winnipeg's specialty mystery bookstore, offering a full range of crime fiction. The bookstore hosts a Mystery Reading Club and has readings and signings by mystery authors.

WHODUNIT has become a family affair, with son Michael an award-winning bookseller (Chase Paymentech Young Bookseller of the Year, 2013), and daughter Sian as social media and general internet guru. 

WHODUNIT carries both new and used books and can special-order any book that is commercially available, as well as ship to out-of-town customers, accept pre-orders for Winnipeg-based customers, and deliver to those unable to reach the bookstore themselves.

 Chris Carter was born in Brasilia, Brazil. After graduation from high school, he moved to the United States where he studied psychology with a specialization in criminal behavior. During his university years, he held a variety of odd jobs, ranging from flipping burgers to being part of an all-male exotic dancing group.

Chris worked as a criminal psychologist for several years before moving to Los Angeles where he swapped the suits and briefcases for ripped jeans, bandanas, and an electric guitar. After a spell playing for a few well-known glam rock bands, he tried his luck in London, where he played for several famous artists and toured the world several times as a professional musician. A few years ago he gave it all up to become a full-time writer.
