Fleet acts fast to snap up cult kidnap tale

Fleet has acquired world rights to Nina X by Ewan Morrison, a novel inspired by the real case of a London cult whose leader kept five women trapped for more than 20 years.

According to editor Ursula Doyle, who concluded the deal with Peter Cox at Redhammer and will publish the novel in early 2019, the story of titular protagonist Nina X’s imprisonment and quest for freedom is “compelling, chilling and all too believable”.
