Fox's psychological thriller to Michael Joseph

Michael Joseph has acquired a début psychological thriller, Mine by Susi Fox, in a pre-empt just hours after receiving the manuscript.

Senior editor Jillian Taylor bought UK and Commonwealth rights, excluding ANZ and Canada, in a two-book deal from Curtis Brown’s Alice Lutyens.

The novel, which features a woman waking from a traumatic caesarean and being presented with a baby that is not hers, unfolds at “heart-thumping pace”, Taylor said.
