Top Five Books, LLC, was founded in the fall of 2007 by editors Alex Lubertozzi and Jennifer Barrell, with the mission of bringing exceptional fiction and nonfiction to discerning readers. As a small press, we focus on a select number of books that deserve to find an audience.

With more than 35 years of experience in the book publishing industry between us, we know how to publish books well. And we see a need in the book industry for more publishers who are selective in what they publish, but who also develop, package, and market their books with as much care and expertise. Which is why we launched Top Five Books with a focus on publishing one of our favorite fiction genres: mysteries.

Top Five Books is distributed to the trade by New Shelves Distribution. Its offices are in Oak Park, Illinois, just outside of Chicago—the home of Ernest Hemingway, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and now, us.
