At long last, the news is out regarding David Fennell's deal with Zaffre Books, along with a spine-chilling cover reveal.
In a deal negotiated by David Headley, Katherine Armstrong bought UK & Commonwealth Rights (excluding Canada) for The Art of Death, which sees Fennell's first outing with DI Grace Archer. It is due to publish in February.
The novel opens in Trafalgar Square, with the discovery of three glass cabinets containing the corpses of homeless men. Archer, who is leading the investigation, comes to learn that the killer has her set in his sights too.
Judith Parker joins Hannah Sheppard's list and we're doubly delighted as Judith's joining us, as she was one of our pitchers at Pitch DHH: York back in 2018.
Currently Judith is an actress and also works in the education sector, after having worked in administration for Children's and Young People's Services. Earlier this year, Judith was longlisted for the Hachette Children's Northern Writers' Award. She lives in County Durham and is working on her first book.
CBS Studios has struck a global first-look deal with Greg Silverman's Stampede Ventures International and has set its first project - an adaptation of Ragnar Jónasson's best-selling Nordic Noir book, The Darkness.
The series will be eight parts, and takes it setting from the book: Reykjavík in Iceland. It follows Hermansdóttir, who is given two weeks before retirement to solve the cold case of a young Russian woman whose body washes up on the Icelandic shore. Hulda discovers that another young woman vanished at the same time, and that no one is telling her the whole story.
Stay turned for more on this exciting news, but in the meantime, congratulations, Ragnar!
