Mystery Month 2015Some of the biggest crime fiction is perpetrated by some of the smallest players. We’re determined to shine the spotlight on them before they break out and wreak havoc across the whole country. Read them—before they publish again!

Criminal Record:

Pushkin Press first broke into the translated-fiction racket in 1997, smuggling infamously high-quality literary merchandise from across the globe to the US and UK markets. This year they’re pushing onto new turf with a splinter gang they’re calling Pushkin Vertigo, using the nous, contacts, and muscle of the Pushkin Press crew to bring some of the world’s most compulsive thrillers and mysteries to desperate crime addicts in America and Britain. They plan to make their move this September, and we’re sure of one thing: it’ll be a bloody Fall.
