The new, expanded edition of Max Allan Collins' ROAD TO PERDITION won a coveted STARRED REVIEW from Publishers Weekly today and we're so excited that we have to share the good news...and, of course, the review! Collins (Quarry in the Black) expands this crime tale set in Depression-era Chicago—originally a graphic novel and later a Sam Mendes–directed film that was itself novelized—into a terrific full-length novel. Michael O’Sullivan, a notorious enforcer and hit man for Irish-American gangster John Looney, is also a family man, and does his best to compartmentalize his two roles. When O’Sullivan’s 12-year-old son, Michael Jr., sneaks along for one of his father’s nighttime... more

A Brash Birthday

Two years ago today, Edgar Award nominated novelist Joel Goldman and #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Goldberg launched Brash Books with thirty titles, most of them acclaimed, award-winning books that had fallen out of print...and that we brought back in new print and digital editions.   Their mission was ambitious: to publish the best crime novels in existence. We believe we've lived up to their brash goal. We now have nearly 100 titles in print, a dozen of them brand new books, several by authors who've never been published before.

The Washington Post ran a terrific piece today about our reissues of Barbara Neely's ground-breaking "Blanche White" mystery novels. The series explores race, culture, politics and sexism through the prism of a compelling, entertaining, and highly-original crime story. These books are prime examples of our dedication to publishing "the best crime novels in existence." The article includes interviews with Barbara and Brash Books co-founder Joel Goldman. Here's an excerpt: Before “The Help” there was Blanche White, an African American housekeeper with a knack for getting tangled up in murder mysteries. Yet as fascinating as the character Blanche White is, the story of Barbara Neely,... more

The editors of CrimeSpree Magazine had some terrific things to say about Brash Book in this month's issue. Here's what they said: Lee Goldberg and Joel Goldman founded Brash Books and these guys have been around the business for a while and wow, do they have a great eye for what to publish. They are putting out books by damn fine authors and they are terrific looking books as well. Two recent books that crossed our desk are Jack Lynch's The Missing and the Dead and The Dead Never Forget. What I love about what Lee and Joel are doing is that in a climate where so many people just want to bitch and moan about publishing, these guys rolled up their sleeves and said 'let's do this the... more
