Rough Edges Press is a proud partner of Wolfpack Publishing, the fastest-growing independent publisher in the country, bringing readers the very best in mystery, suspense, and thriller fiction. Although an American invention (by a fellow named Poe back in the 1840s), the appeal of the mystery story is worldwide, as evidenced by Sherlock Holmes, Sexton Blake, Inspector Maigret, James Bond, and countless other immortal characters. Many of today’s most popular books fall into one of the many subgenres of the mystery field.

The brainchild of veteran novelist James Reasoner and Mike Bray, the CEO of Wolfpack Publishing, Rough Edges Press concentrates on the more tough-minded aspects of mystery fiction, from the traditional—private detectives, police procedurals, espionage, and crime, including classic reprints—to the more contemporary: heart-pounding adventure yarns, psychological suspense, legal thrillers, and international intrigue.

There is nothing quite like escaping into a book that transports the reader into a world of danger, deception, and dark secrets . . . tales that will have you turning the pages deep into the night to find out what’s going to happen next.

Rough Edges Press intends to deliver that sort of escape regularly. Give our books a try! We’re here to entertain, intrigue, and excite you.
