MAXIM JAKUBOWSKI worked for many years in book publishing as an editor (including titles by William Golding, Peter Ackroyd, Oliver Stone, Michael Moorcock, Peter Ustinov, Jim Thompson, David Goodis, Paul Ableman, Sophie Grigson, Marc Behm, Cornell Woolrich, etc) and launched the Murder One Bookshop, which he owned and ran for over 20 years.

Maxim Jakubowski recommends
The Agency Trilogy
The Agency Trilogy (1994)
David Meltzer
"In this powerful trilogy, Meltzer describes the empire of the Agency, an all-seeing, well-organized, self-sufficient, sexual underground that secretly controls America, if not the world."
Fairy Gunmother
Fairy Gunmother (1997)
(Belleville, book 1)
Daniel Pennac
"Already a bestseller in its native country, it deserves to be one here if there's any justice in the world of crime."
Candleland (2000)
(Stephen Larkin, book 3)
Martyn Waites
"Martyn Waites's Candleland bears witness to the flowering of a new talent."
Ode to a Banker
Ode to a Banker (2000)
(Marcus Didius Falco, book 12)
Lindsey Davis
"A witty satire of publishing and banking with striking contemporary resonace . . . hot, noisy, smelly and full of unforgettable characters."
Unnatural Fire
Unnatural Fire (2000)
(Countess Ashby De La Zouche, book 1)
Fidelis Morgan
"A scintillating tale of murder and mayhem in 17th century London... Lusty, funny and gripping, this is one the best historical crime books in ages."
China Lake
China Lake (2002)
(Evan Delaney, book 1)
Meg Gardiner
"With a colourful cast of richly delineated characters, a protagonist with whom the readers will easily identify - all big-hearted, quick-tongued and hair-trigger-tempered - this novel provides a fast-paced ride through some of the more dubious nooks and crannies of the American dream and is an impressive opening salvo by a Surrey-based expatriate who hits the bookshelves running."
Mandrake and Murder
Mandrake and Murder (2009)
(Robin & Marian Mysteries)
Clayton Emery
"Clayton Emery's lively Robin and Marian tales of historical crime, misdeeds and gallivanting are like a breath of fresh air."
