About Mysterious Press

Mysterious Press

Otto Penzler, proprietor of The Mysterious Bookshop in TriBeCa, founded The Mysterious Press in 1975. The imprint was devoted to printing the best mystery, crime and suspense books, using fine paper and top dust jacket artists, as well as offering many limited, signed editions.

It went on to publish such best-selling authors as James Ellroy, P.D. James, Donald E. Westlake, Eric Ambler, Ross Macdonald, Isaac Asimov, Ed McBain, Kingsley Amis and Elmore Leonard, both in hardcover and paperback.

Now, The Mysterious Press is also an electronic publishing company, issuing books through MysteriousPress.com.

Working in conjunction with Open Road Integrated Media, this 21st-century publishing house has taken books from some of the most distinguished crime, mystery and suspense writers in the world, offering them in digital reading formats. We are maintaining our commitment to quality - our books are carefully formatted, expertly proofread, and accompanied by professionally-designed covers.

Many of the books offered by MysteriousPress.com were out of print but have taken advantage of digital reading formats to bring classic fiction to new audiences.
