Zaffre, an imprint of Bonnier Fiction Publishing, has acquired a new crime series by David Jackson.
The series is set in Liverpool and features policeman DS Nathan Cody.The first book in the series is entitled A Tapping at my Door.
Zaffre acquired the UK and Commonwealth rights from Oli Munson at A M Heath in a five-way auction and will publish A Tapping at my Door in spring 2016. A mass-market paperback will follow later in the year.
The publisher also has plans to release a second book in the series, as yet untitled, and is republishing Jackson’s Callum Doyle series, three of which were published by Pan Macmillan, while a fourth was self-published.
Joel Richardson, publisher at Bonnier Publishing Fiction, stated: “I am absolutely thrilled to have an author of David’s calibre join the Zaffre family. I loved A Tapping at my Door from its devilishly creepy opening to its nail-biting conclusion. It introduces a whole cast of characters that I’m sure readers will love.”
