 The Profusion CrimeSeries

Profusion Publishers introduce a trio of novels from Romanian authors, along with a true crime story about a serial killer so far unheard of in Western Europe.

The Profusion books make up a coherent map of the politics, the culture and the social issues within one of the most complex, inaccessible societies on the European continent, and they represent a new and thrilling intervention in the arena of crime and crime fiction, within a market which has shown itself ready and eager to accommodate fresh thinking and new points of view.

Attack in the Library by George Arion is one of the classic narratives of Romanian popular fiction, written during the dictatorship of the 1980s in the finest Noir tradition.

Kill the General by Bogdan Hrib is an exciting and suspenseful thriller, a rollercoaster ride through the transitions which have taken place over the last decades in Romanian history.

Anatomical Clues by Oana Stoica-Mujea features a crime-fighting heroine who is unique not only in the landscape of Romanian literature, but possibly also in that of modern crime writing.

Rimaru - Butcher of Bucharest by Mike Phillips and Stejarel Olaru is a factual account of the crimes committed by serial killer Ion Rîmaru in 1970-71 Bucharest, the result of exhaustive research in previously inaccessible and secret files.
