The first four Pushkin Vertigo titles will be published in September:

VERTIGO by Boileau-Narcejac is the original mind-bending thriller behind the Alfred Hitchcock film that is regarded by many as the greatest movie ever made. A troubled ex-policeman struggles in a web of deceit after an old friend asks him to look after his wife as a favour.

About the authors: Boileau-Narcejac is the nom-de-plume of Pierre Boileau (1906-89) and Thomas Narcejac (1908-98), one of France’s most successful writing duos. Their works inspired numerous films, including Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo and Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Les Diaboliques, based on their 1952 debut novel She Who Was No More.

THE TOKYO ZODIAC MURDERS by Soji Shimada is a Japanese cult classic, named one of the top ten locked-room mysteries of all time by the Guardian. An old eccentric artist living with seven women has been found dead – in a room locked from the inside. His diaries reveal a murderous plan which is carried out shortly afterwards. Can readers solve the mystery before they reach the end of the book?

About the author: Born in 1948, Soji Shimada has been hailed as the ‘God of Mystery’. He made his literary debut with The Tokyo Zodiac Murders in 1981 and has since written more than 100 works in total. In 2009 Shimada received the prestigious Japan Mystery Literature Award in recognition of his life’s work.

THE DISAPPEARANCE OF SIGNORA GIULIA is written by Italian-born Piero Chiara. Every Thursday for three years, Signora Giulia takes the train to Milan to visit her daughter. But one Thursday she simply disappears. For Detective Sciancalepre, this mystery is darker and more tangled than he couldhave imagined…

About the author: Born in 1913 in Northern Italy, Chiara was one of the most celebrated writers of the post-war period. The winner of more than a dozen literary prizes, he is widely read and studied in Italy. This is his first book to be translated into English.

 MASTER OF THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT, by Leo Perutz, is set in the Viennese autumn of 1909, where famed actor Eugen Bischoff is driven to suicide. There will be other deaths that autumn, and it will be harder to track down the invisible enemy – a monster who feeds off intrigue, imagination and fear.

About the author: Leo Perutz was born in Prague in 1882. He is the author of eleven novels, which attracted the admiration of authors such as Graham Greene, Italo Calvino and Ian Fleming. He died in 1957.
