Orion has acquired three new books by Linwood Barclay.
Deputy publishing director Bill Massey bought UK and Commonwealth rights, excluding Canada, to the thrillers from Helen Heller at The Helen Heller Agency.
The first book from the new deal will be published in September 2017.
Before that, Orion will publish three novels set in Promise Falls, a small New England town that has featured in previous titles by Barclay, over 18 months, beginning with Broken Promise in hardcover in September 2015.
Barclay said: “I couldn't be more thrilled to be doing three more books with the folks at Orion, who have been so terrific to work with from the very beginning, and always behind me one hundred percent.”
Massey said: “Linwood just keeps getting better and better, so the future’s looking pretty exciting.”
