New Harper deal for Double Eagle author

<p>HarperFiction has signed a new two-book deal with <em>The Double Eagle</em> author James Twining for a &quot;good six-figure sum&quot;. Editorial director Wayne Brookes bought UK and Commonwealth rights (including Canada) from Jonathan Lloyd at Curtis Brown.</p><p>The books, as yet untitled, will be published in 2010 and 2011 respectively. &quot;I&#39;m very excited to be carrying on my fabulous relationship with James,&quot; said Brookes. &quot;From the moment I read the first words of <em>The Double Eagle</em>, I have been enthralled and entertained by the adventures of former art thief Tom Kirk, and now I have two more to get my teeth into. James was the first author I acquired for HarperFiction and I can&#39;t imagine a year without the escapades of Tom Kirk.&quot;<br /></p>
