PRLog - Aug. 23, 2012 - A new French-to-English publishing company, Le French Book, is launching its first books, starting with three exciting crime fiction titles. This digital-first publisher has set out to bring France's best mysteries, thrillers, novels, short stories, and non-fiction to new readers across the English-speaking world. France has a very vibrant creative culture—in September nearly 426 French novels will be published. Yet few are translated into English.

“I couldn’t stand that so many good reads were not making it to a larger audience,” Anne Trager says. “As you can see on our website http://www.lefrenchbook.com, our main focus is to publish exciting commercial fiction, starting with prize-winning, page-turning fiction. Le French Book is about good reads as much as we are about France. We are a bridge to the good, entertaining writing that is coming out of that country today.”

Le French Book’s first three books are:

- The Paris Lawyer by Sylvie Granotier, a prize-winning psychological thriller that doubles as a legal procedural. The author is written by an acclaimed master of French crime fiction. Edgar-award winning author Thomas H. Cook says it is "a beautifully written and elegantly structured novel.”

- Treachery in Bordeaux by Jean-Pierre Alaux and Noël Balen, a classic whodunit set in French wine country, that has been made for television in France. It is the first of a 20-book series that NYT bestselling author William Martin calls "terrific."

-   The 7th Woman by Frédérique Molay, who the former head of the AFP call the "French Michael Connelly". This police procedural that won one France’s most prestigious crime fiction awards and was voted Best Crime Fiction Novel of the Year.

Co-founder Fabrice Neuman is French and the company’s tech consultant.
