Bloomsbury acquires series by Rohan Gavin
14.01.13 | Charlotte Williams
Bloomsbury has acquired a “darkly comic detective series”, Knightley & Son, by screenwriter Rohan Gavin—the son of children’s writer, Jamila Gavin.
Publishing director Rebecca McNally bought world rights in all languages from agent Isobel Dixon at Blake Friedmann. Bloomsbury will also publish in the US.
The series features a father-and-son detective duo, where 13-year-old Darkus is often left to solve the crime due to his father’s “unfortunate habit of falling into a narcoleptic trance at the least opportune moment”.
The first book in the new series will be published in paperback in July 2013.
