Freight to ship ‘bruegel in a book’

Fiona Brownlee, on behalf of Freight Books, has secured The Wolf Trial by Neil Mackay in a pre-empt with Tim Mueller at Heyne (Random House Germany).

Loosely based on the accused serial killer and cannibal Peter Stumpf, known as the “Werewolf of Bedburg”, Mueller described the title as a “dark medieval novel [with] stories which intertwine in an almost baroque manner”.

Brownlee called it “a Bruegel in a book”.

It will be published by Freight in March 2016.
