Accent signs crime writer Bernard Knight

Accent Press has signed numerous titles by "acclaimed" crime writer Bernard Knight CBE, author of the Crowner John Mysteries.

The titles signed include several of Knight’s crime novels, many of which have been out of print since the 1970s, which will now be made available in e-book formats for the first time.

Knight, a former forensic pathologist, has also been commissioned to write a series of short stories drawing on his experiences as a doctor in the 1950s.

Editor Greg Rees said: "It’s a great opportunity for Accent to bring a fantastic author’s work to a new audience, and I look forward to working with Bernard on his new titles."

The first two reissues will be available from December 2015 with more to follow next year.
