Perry picks her Poison

Hodder & Stoughton editor Anne Perry has snapped up two fantasy/crime novels, described as "a cross between Ben Aaronovitch and Lauren Beukes".

Perry acquired UK and Commonwealth (excluding Canada) rights to Paul Crilley’s Poison City and its sequel, Neon City, from Sandra Sawicka at Marjacq Scripts.

The pair are the first adult novels from Scottish-born, South African resident Crilley, who has previously written TV scripts, computer games and Middle Grade and Young Adult titles, including The Invisible Order series (Egmont US).
