Summary
iambik - the indie audiobook upstart from some of the people behind LibriVox - launches a new collection of 10 crime & mystery audiobooks, with books from Akashic Books, Hard Case Crime, Tyrus Books, Soho Press and Minotaur. The collection includes noir craftsman Seymour Shubin, whom Tony Hillerman calls, “a master of prose, one of the very best,” and a translation of the first novel from famed Japanese mystery writer Akimitsu Takagi. Books are priced at $6.99, or a collection of 10 for $44.99.
Details
We’re very excited to announce our newest release from iambik audiobooks - a wonderful collection of indie whodunnits, mystery, crime, and noir.

We have Witness to Myself, from the noir craftsman Seymour Shubin, whom Tony Hillerman calls,  “a master of prose, one of the very best.” Suicide Casanova, by Arthur Nersesian is our very first forray into gritty erotic thrillers, which Bookmunch.co.uk calls: “perverse and filthy, funny and charming, and utterly compelling." The Tattoo Murder Case is the famed first novel from Japan’s most acclaimed mystery writer, Akimitsu Takagi, and should give a certain Swedish series a run for its money. DC Brod’s Getting Sassy is part off-beat thriller, part touching portrait of a daughter struggling with her mother's mental decline.

These books and six more gems come from some of our favourite indie publishers doing some of the most exciting work in letters in English: Akashic Books, Hard Case Crime, Soho Press, HandE Publishing, and Tyrus Books.

With each book priced at $6.99, you can’t afford not to buy one! Even better, you could get the whole collection of ten beautifully read audibooks for $44.99.

* All or Nothing, by Preston L. Allen, narrated by Mark Nelson  (Akashic Books)

* It's Behind You, by Keith Temple, narrated by Ruth Golding (HandE Pubishers)
