The best Crime Fiction from Eastern Europe is now available in selected bookstores and online on http://www.profusion.org.uk. Also available as Kindle E-Books.
Published in 2011: Attack in the Library by George Arion and Kill the General by Bogdan Hrib.
Forthcoming in 2012: Anatomical Clues by Oana Stoica-Mujea, and the true crime story of Rimaru – Butcher of Bucharest, by Mike Phillips and Stejarel Olaru.
These books are different. They are thrilling, and they also illuminate the reality of a secret Romania, once behind the Iron Curtain, now a vital European partner. Behind the tumult of the new, lies a past of intrigue, terror and pitch black comedy. The Profusion Crime Series blazes a trail through this hidden history.
The English versions of these books, crafted by a British-Romanian team, were edited by author Mike Phillips.
While making an excellent read in English, the texts retain the local Romanian flavour, the stories and characters being presented in a fashion as close to the original intention of the authors as possible.
