We've had a new client join the DHH stable this week:
Reagan Lee Ray joined David Headley's list and is working on her debut novel, set in 1930s London within the walls of Bedlam. A gothic historical tale, guaranteed to get under your skin, we hope to have more news on this very special book soon!
We hope to show you the UK cover in October but in the meantime, allow us to tell you more about this highly-anticipated standalone, from the author of both the Dark, and Hidden, Iceland series:
Una is struggling to deal with her father's sudden, tragic suicide. She spends her nights drinking alone in Reykjavik, stricken with thoughts that she might one day follow in his footsteps.
So when she sees an advert seeking a teacher for two girls in the tiny village of Skálar - population of ten - on the storm-battered north coast of the island, she sees it as a chance to escape.
But once she arrives, Una quickly realises nothing in city life has prepared her for this. The villagers are unfriendly. The weather is bleak. And, from the creaky attic bedroom of the old house where she's living, she's convinced she hears the ghostly sound of singing.
Una worries that she's losing her mind. And then, just before Christmas, there's a murder...
Mandy Robotham, the author of the October release, The Berlin Girl, has had World Rights to her next two books snapped up by Avon in a deal negotiated by Broo Doherty.
Due to the success of her first novels, these next two will also be set in WW2. Stay tuned for more on this deal...
How can a dead woman avenge herself on her killer twelve years after her murder? This is the puzzle facing Ben Devlin in his latest case.
He is called to the scene of a murder - a man has been stabbed to death in his rented room and when his identity is discovered Devlin feels a ghost walk over his grave as he knows the name Brooklyn Harris well. As a teenager, Harris beat his then-girlfriend Hannah Row to death, and then spent twelve years in prison for the murder.
As Devlin investigates the dead man's movements since his release it becomes apparent Harris has been grooming teenage girls online and then arranging to meet them. But his activities have been discovered by others, notably a vigilante, who goes straight to the top of Devlin's list of suspects... until he uncovers that Harris was killed on the anniversary of Hannah's death - just too big a coincidence in Devlin's books. So Hannah's family join the ever-growing list of suspects being interviewed by his team. And then forensics contact Devlin with the astounding news that blood found on Harris's body is a perfect match to that of Hannah Row's.
Yet how can this be; the girl was murdered many years ago - and Devlin doesn't believe in ghosts.
