Curated by Paul O'Brien

Crime is awesome. To read that is. Crime is twice as awesome when it brings you to different places; different worlds. And that's what we have a plenty in this StoryBundle collection.

The International Crime Bundle.

We've got novels from some of the best crime writers today, having picked up such awards as the Goldsboro 'Last Laugh' Award, Anthony, Macavity and Agatha Award, Spinetingler Book of Year, Pulp Pusher Book of the Year and a small matter of a Pulitzer-prize!

Our authors have been translated into several different languages and called various corners of the world home. They have reviewed, reported, photographed and written about the world they live in and travel around—whether it be a India, Ireland, Poland, United Kingdom, the Americas, Hong Kong, Singapore or Bangkok—this panel of authors write crime from an international point of view.

And I hope you enjoy that wealth and breath of experience.

They're also Bestsellers too, having conquered the New York Times, USA Today and Amazon in many countries!

I hope you enjoy authors from all over the world, coming together to thrill you, entertain you and fill your ereader with blood, crime scenes, adventure, chills, laughs, noir, guns, cleverness and surprise. I know I enjoyed putting it together.

And you get to decide what it's all worth. Pay the minimum and you get the main bundle - pay a little more and you get the main bundle plus the bonus books!

It's simple.

You even get to decide what way your money is split. How about giving some to charity? How much of your money would you like to go the writers? How much goes to StoryBundle?

You decide.

So dive in and enjoy reading this beautifully measured mix, just as much as I enjoyed collecting it for you. As your curator, I have tried to give you the perfect pitch of story and crime from all angles. –Paul O'Brien
