Horowitz hat-trick for Century

Century and Arrow publisher Selina Walker has snapped up three crime novels from Anthony Horowitz.

Jonathan Lloyd of Curtis Brown sold UK and Commonwealth rights excluding Canada to two novels featuring PI Daniel Hawthorne, and a follow-up to Magpie Murders, film rights to which were recently sold to an undisclosed production company.

Century will publish the new Magpie Murders novel in hardback in autumn 2020, with the two Hawthornes due in 2021 and 2022 respectively.
