Publishing Deal - Barbara Nadel

I've just received an email from Quercus telling me about a new series from Barbara Nadel. Nadel is probably best know for her Turkish Cetin Ikmen series, listed and reviewed here. You can win a copy of the latest book in that series, A Noble Killing, here (open world-wide).

Jane Wood of Quercus has signed up Barbara Nadel to write a new crime series in which the author returns to her East End roots. The series will feature a white ex-policeman (and ex-soldier), now a PI, and an Asian Muslim woman who assists him. he London Borough of Newham is one of the most ethnically complex urban districts in the world, with a high rate of violent crime, gang culture and racism. To signal this change of direction, Barbara will write the books under the name B J Nadel. Quercus will publish the first book in the series in summer 2012.

Jane Wood said:'I'm delighted that Barbara is joining Quercus. As a daughter of Newham she is uniquely qualified to write about this richly diverse borough of our sprawling capital city, an area undergoing immense change with the coming Olympics.'

Barbara Nadel said: 'I am very happy to take this opportunity to explore a new and exciting crime series'.
