Ben Willis, publishing director for crime and thriller, bought the third and fourth books in the DI Grace Archer series in a deal brokered by David Headley of D H H Literary Agency. The first in the deal, The Silent Man, will be published in hardback, e-book and audio in September 2023.
Fennell said: “I’m thrilled to continue writing the Archer and Quinn thrillers at Zaffre. I’m also excited to bring the next instalment: The Silent Man. A family is murdered at home in the dead of night. Yet one child remains alive and well. When a second family suffers the same fate, Archer is under pressure to find the killer before the Silent Man strikes again.”
Willis said: “David is a real rising star in UK crime fiction, and consistently delivers brilliantly twisty, clever and page-turning thrillers. Detective Grace Archer is a complex and memorable character, and I can’t wait to bring her to even more readers in the coming years.”
