Stardust Mysteries is dedicated to bringing exciting new murder mysteries and vintage-syle and retro-style books and ebooks to people who love to read. Featuring the works of author Christopher Pinto, Stardust Mysteries also includes works by great new authors including Everett Peacock and Will Viharo, as well as artists such as Robert Jimenez. All of our books embody the spirit of classic retro, vintage and Tiki culture, but appeal to anyone who enjoys a great mystery, ghost story, neo-noir fiction, paranormal adventure, metaphysical escape or just a good old fashioned crime novel.


Christopher Pinto's writings have been compared to "a cross between Stephen King and Mickey Spillane". As these are two of the best-selling authors of all time, he really takes that as a major compliment. Like the other authors on this site, his books have mass appeal but will also be most enjoyed by a specific audience of people who like to get lost in time and place while reading a great book.


Pinto's books are generally set in past, from the 1930s, 1950s, 1970s and 1980s. His recurring characters add a special extra fun to his stories, yet you can read any book from the series and instantly know who you're reading about and when. His Detective Bill Riggins collection is set mainly along the U.S. Atlantic Coast, in Florida, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. 'Murder Behind the Closet Door' takes place mostly in South Jersey: Ocean City, Wildwood, Wildwood Crest, Cape May, Atlantic City, Egg Harbor Township, Galloway Township, Cardiff, Somers Point, and Absecon. In this book Riggins also travels from Weehawkin, NJ to Dove, Delaware. 'Murder on Tiki Island' has Riggins starting out in his home town of Weehawkin, going to work in New Yirk City, and traveling to the Florida Keys, including Key West, Islamorada and Sugarloaf Key, as well as the mythical island known as Tiki Island. 'Murder Under The Boards" has Riggins driving down to Atlantic City in his 1957 Chevy; he stays at the Stardust Motel in West Atlantic City, and motors down to Margate, NJ to visit Lucy the Elephant. Pinto grew up in these Jersey Shore Towns and now lives in South Florida, where he often vacations in the Keys.


Whether you are looking for a paranormal murder mystery, an insane adventure into a neo-noir world of crime, or quaint getaway to a tropical paradise, Stardust Mysteries Publishing will certainly hae something for you. Look for more books, music and great authors coming soon as we grow!
