In response to recent advances in AI technology we have implemented an non-AI-generative text policy for all our books, blurbs, marketing materials and book reviews. 

The book reviews arranged by Hobeck have been written by genuine humans who are also book lovers and avid readers and have not been generated by AI in any shape of form.

Welcome to Hobeck Books a leading family-run independent publisher of award-winning crime, thriller, mystery and suspense books.

We only publish books that we ourselves love reading. We read every submission independently of each other and if we don't both fall in love with the book, we don't publish it. Simple as that. 
We sell direct to independent bookshops at 40% discount on a sale or return basis. If you are an independent bookshop and you are interested in selling Hobeck books, no minimum order, then please get in touch with Rebecca Collins at
