Two ambitious new novels build techno-futures in which surveillance offers disturbing new threats.

“Oloixarac riffs on science as rebellion, the ways that technology can be used to both prop up and dismantle power, and the fine line between communal bliss and authoritarian groupthink."

'Flowers Over The Inferno' Has A Tantalizing Weirdness

"One of the best parts of FLOWERS OVER THE INFERNO is the older, gruff superintendent Teresa Battaglia. She is out of shape, diabetic and busy fighting the early stages of Alzheimer's disease—on top of handling a complex case. We sympathize with Battaglia quite naturally, and it's nice to see a cop who isn't slim and sexy chasing after serial killers." —NPR Books

Get acquainted with superintendent Teresa Battaglia!

Ilaria Tuti's crime thriller, set in the mountains of northern Italy, stars a classic odd couple of cops: A gruff, aging, unhealthy veteran detective and her young whippersnapper of a partner.

Finding an Epic Crime Novel in a Mountain Ghost Town - An Editor Treks Calabria Searching for Roots and a Story

We're not biased: the story behind the US edition of BLACK SOULS is a fascinating mix of cousin-friends and ghost mountain towns.

Dip into Soho Associate Publisher Juliet Grames's story of meeting Gioacchino Criaco in Calabria, and how his debut about the ’Ndrangheta came to be.

Generally I subscribe to the notion that a book’s editor is best silent and invisible, allowing the author’s text to speak for itself. But the story of how we at Soho Press came to acquire Gioacchi…
