New mysteries and thrillers
French mystery and thriller writers are a very creative bunch.

Le French Book is dedicated to bringing commercial fiction from France to a wider audience, starting with English translations of top mysteries and thrillers, and its 2015 line-up of books holds a whole variety of styles in the genre.

“We'll be continuing some of our successful series, and we'll be launching some stand-alones and another series. As always, we want to broaden the spectrum of entertaining reads we are making available to readers,” publisher Anne Trager says. “French mystery and thriller writers are a very creative bunch, and our goal is to bring their work in all its diversity to a wider audience with our translations.”

The publisher has scheduled one new book release every month, all mysteries and thrillers from France.

January—The City of Blood by award-winning author Frédérique Molay. This new book in the Paris Homicide series brings Paris alive with a solid police procedural.

February—Cognac Conspiracies by Jean-Pierre Alaux and Noël Balen. The Winemaker Detective finds his loyalties tested in Cognac.
