Harvill Secker has acquired UK and Commonwealth rights for two new Jack Lennon novels by the Belfast crime writer Stuart Neville, in a deal with Caspian Dennis of Abner Stein. The two new novels are to be published January 2014 and January 2015 and will be a great asset to Harvill Secker’s prestigious crime list which features authors such as Jo Nesbo and Henning Mankell.
Stuart Neville’s debut The Twelve was published to critical acclaim in 2009 and went on to win the LA Times Book Prize in its category. Collusion and Stolen Souls have followed closely in its tracks, each garnering increasingly widespread praise.
In 2013 Harvill Secker will publish Ratlines, an exciting standalone thriller following the trail of Nazis in Ireland in the wake of World War II.
This will be followed by two newly acquired novels featuring Detective Inspector Jack Lennon, the protagonist of Stolen Souls, which has just been published to great acclaim. In the first of these new novels, Jack is struggling to keep his own life together but is dragged into a case of two brothers who, as children, committed a horrific murder and are now back on the streets. The second will feature a highly dangerous character from Jack’s past.
