We are independent-minded and progressive. We cater to the armchair detective, the repeat offender and, uniquely, an emerging younger readership.
A new imprint publishing a small, focused selection of the best crime titles a year. Our editors span a range of tastes, from literary crossover to fast-paced, urgent and commercial. We’re looking for a strong voice from crime writers who have been published before as well as debut writers.
We champion books that entertain the reader and turn preconceived notions of genre on their head; with the purpose of showcasing plots that engage, stories that matter and, most of all, characters that are true to life. We publish to spark imagination and conversation.
We are looking for incredible locations to inspire, taking in writers from the US, the UK and elsewhere, from the heart of urban environments to remote islands: with a dedication to bringing you one gem of translated crime a year.
As an imprint of Angry Robot we will continue on the legacy of that imprint by commissioning and searching for debuts from non-traditional writing backgrounds.
