Robert Gold

Bookouture has acquired North American rights in three thrillers by Robert Gold, the pseudonym of Rob Waddington, Group Sales Director at Penguin Random House.

Managing Director Jenny Geras and Commissioning Editor Ruth Jones acquired North American rights in Twelve Secrets, Eleven Liars and Ten Seconds from Juliet Mushens at Mushens Entertainment. All three titles will be published by Bookouture on 2 August 2024.

The three titles, featuring investigative journalist Ben Harper, are published in the UK by Little, Brown’s Sphere imprint and have sold over 165,000 copies across all formats for Sphere. Twelve Secrets was a Sunday Times bestseller and a Richard and Judy book club pick.

Robert Gold says,

‘Bookouture bring a unique, inventive and impassioned approach to publishing. I‘ve watched their continued and growing success from afar for a number of years, and could not be more delighted in having them as my publisher for the US market. Jenny and her team are both innovators and creatively ambitious, and I cannot wait to be working with them.’

Jenny Geras says,

‘Rob is an incredibly pacy, gripping and commercial writer and it’s easy to see why this series has been such a huge success in the UK. We look forward to taking Ben Harper to a whole new readership in North America.’

Juliet Mushens says,

‘I’m really excited to have my first project with Bookouture – and what a project! Rob’s publishing goes from strength to strength in the UK and in translation, and I’m delighted to see a North American audience fall for his fantastic sense of pace, great characters, and intricate plotting.’
