Corvus Books has signed a deal for two new books from Michael Ridpath. Nicolas Cheetham bought world English rights from Oliver Munson of Blake Friedmann Literary Agency.
The books are part of a new series set in Iceland and the first title will be Fire and Ice. The book introduces Magnus Johnson, a homicide detective who becomes involved in a murder investigation after the body of a university professor is found. Corvus will publish Fire and Ice in spring 2010.
Cheetham said: "Fire and Ice opens an ambitious and ingenious crime series, which binds Iceland’s landscape and history, secrets and superstitions in a strikingly original plot that will span several volumes. It is an exercise in storytelling genius from an established international bestseller."
