Crime duo for A&B

Allison & Busby has acquired two crime writers for this November.

Publishing director Susie Dunlop acquired world English-language rights (excluding US and Canada) in Killing the Emperors by Ruth Dudley Edwards from Jane Conway-Gordon. The title is described as a “scathing attack on the ‘insane’ world of contemporary art”.

A&B also acquired world English-language rights to Aline Templeton’s Evil for Evil from Theresa Chris. The title is the latest instalment 
in the DI Marjory “Big Marge” Fleming series, and will be followed in 2013 by Come to Dust.
