Justin, Charles & Co.

Justin, Charles & Co. is a new publisher established to produce high quality books with commercial appeal, books that will engage, entertain, enlighten and delight.

Whether it’s an eye-popping jaunt through the duplicitous South, a maelstrom of guns, drugs, loyalty and betrayal in South Boston, an engaging profile of the quirkily dark, idie art-rock band Pavement, or a picaresque novel of lust, greed, historical inevitability, and putt-putt golf, our chief passion is finding and presenting a great story, told in a fresh voice.

Justin, Charles & Co. is based in Boston, a long-time hub of American cultural and intellectual life, home to a great diversity of writers, readers, and thinkers of all persuasions, and a traditional center for books and publishing.

Our list of the best fiction and nonfiction for the general reader is kept deliberately small in order to achieve maximum impact for the titles we select. In our inaugural season we’re pleased to introduce four acclaimed British authors to American readers.

Kate’s Mystery Books

Justin, Charles & Co. is proud to announce a partnership with one of America’s greatest mystery bookstores, Kate’s Mystery Books of Cambridge, Massachusetts. We’ve joined with Kate’s to create a mystery and crime fiction imprint under the Justin, Charles umbrella. Every season we’ll be releasing fresh new mysteries, thrillers, police procedurals and hot new series under the Kate’s banner, as well as importing some of the coolest new crime fiction from Great Britain.
