Sharpe Books acquires three from Maitland

Sharpe Books will publish Iain Maitland’s Bloomfield & Palmer series, a trilogy of detective novels set in Suffolk in Victorian-Edwardian times.

Richard Foreman, founder, acquired world English language rights to three books from Annette Crossland at A for Authors Agency Ltd. Publication will begin in autumn 2021 with Wickham Market Murder and Southwold Murders and Cobbold Point Murders will follow. 

Foreman commented: "Sharpe Books are looking forward to publishing and promoting this new series by Iain Maitland. The Bloomfield & Palmer titles will be suitably gripping — and fun."

Maitland said: "I've long been a fan of proper old-fashioned murder mysteries and the Edwardian era, and the wonderful historical fiction novels from Sharpe Books — signing to write these Bloomfield & Palmer novellas is a win-win-win for me. I can't wait to get stuck into them!"
