Bookouture are thrilled to announce the signing of author Dylan Young in a three-book World rights deal for a new UK crime thriller series.
Come Out To Play is the first book in a new crime series featuring Detective Anna Gwynne and her cold case unit. Creepy but alluring psychopath, Hector Shaw, is the thorn in Anna’s side and the unusual aid to her investigations. It will be published in February 2018 with two more books to follow later in the year.
Jennifer Hunt said,
As soon as I started reading Come Out To Play I knew it would be my first acquisition; I couldn’t put it down. The Welsh setting in the Forest of Dean is incredibly eerie and Detective Anna Gwynne is a strong character with extraordinary gusto. Combining this with the disturbing Hector Shaw is a masterstroke, and I grew as obsessed as Hector becomes with Anna. I can’t wait for books 2 and 3.
It’s tremendously exciting to be working with Jennifer and the Bookouture team as they reinvent the publishing model, and I am delighted to be a small part of that. Somebody pinch me, please.
We do hope you will join us on Facebook and Twitter to celebrate.
