What the bloody hell is this?

Two years. That is how long we’ve been discussing the idea of a site dedicated to great crime fiction and suspense novels. In that time, we’ve searched far and wide, Googling to the end of the metaverse and have yet to find a site for readers dedicated to books about killers and detectives and hit men and ordinary folks in peril and MacGuffins and missing persons and ex-military guns-for-hire and forensic pathologists and sinister dark characters lurking in darker alleys. And we found nothing. Or at least nothing that held our interest.

Hence: Blood on the Page. A place to find the best crime and suspense fiction with a complete focus on storytelling. The best part: you’ll get to reads large chunks of books for free. More on that in a second.

We (as in the collective “we” of Bantam Dell) publish a range of authors. Household names like Lee Child, Karin Slaughter and Dean Koontz. Award-winning writers and rising stars like Brett Battles, Sean Doolittle, and Tom Piccirilli. And if we do say so, some fantastic crime from across the pond including David Hewson and Christopher Fowler. All of these writers craft amazing stories, tales that keep you on edge of your seat and turning pages.

So Blood on the Page will focus on stories. We’re going to give you free chapters to read. More pages than you’ll find on booksellers’ sites, or even on Bantam Dell’s main site. Every other week, there will be a new excerpt posted. And while the excerpts are live, select authors will be blogging with their own thoughts and insights and real-life stories. We’re even going to throw in the occasional podcast episode and video feature.

It has been a long time coming and we’re glad we are finally able to give you (what we hope) will be a great source for the newest and most exciting crime and suspense.

And most of all, we want you to help us tailor it all. Send us e-mails at We want your feedback, input, criticism, and insight.

Yikes and away,

The Blood on the Page team.
