Bonnier Zaffre has acquired UK and Commonwealth rights for The Anomaly, the first title published by Michael Rutger, from Jonny Geller at Curtis Brown.
The Anomaly is described as an “utterly gripping” action adventure story. It follows Nolan Moore, an amateur archaeologist, as he travels to a hidden cave in the Grand Canyon and discovers far more than he ever could have bargained for.
Sophie Orme, editorial director, Bonnier Zaffre, commented it was one of the most enjoyable, gripping and frightening thrillers she had ever read. "Michael Rutger truly is Michael Crichton for a new generation. I can’t wait for everyone to discover him," she added.
The Anomaly will publish on 12th July 2018 in hardback and e-book. It will be published in the US by Grand Central Publishing.
