The Langtail Press brings back books that have been out of print, or unavailable – the theory being that a good book is always a good book, and that an old book is a new book if you haven’t read it yet.
The list is primarily geared around Crime/ Mystery novels. Authors that were (and still are) revered but whose books have slipped out of print. As an e-book or paperback novel, these books give a taste of where the genre comes from and are a must for any crime aficionados.


Managing Director James Prichard is a lifelong fan of the ever popular Crime/Mystery genre. Prior to founding The Langtail Press, he has spent a career in publishing, predominantly at HarperCollins where he was most recently Commercial Director. Being from a literary family, James has a lasting link to crime fiction, as his great grandmother was Agatha Christie. He is delighted to be able to publish so many fine examples of this literary style.
