According to BookTrade, Malcolm Edwards, the Deputy CEO of the Orion Publishing Group, has acquired UK and Commonwealth rights (excluding Canada) in two crime novels by CWA Gold Dagger winning author Robert Wilson.
The first Novel, Capital Punishment, marks the beginning of a new crime series featuring Charles Boxer – ex-army, ex-police with a specialty in kidnap and rescue. Here is a short summary:
Alyshia D’Cruz, an Indian billionaire’s beautiful daughter hails a black cab on a Friday night in Covent Garden and wakes up kidnapped. Boxer is hired by her father to find her but soon discovers that the gang doesn’t seem to want any ransom but rather to tease, torture and, if they get their way, kill.
Capital Punishment is scheduled for publication in January 2013 and will be edited by Genevieve Pegg, Editorial Director, Orion Fiction.
Robert Wilson is the critically acclaimed author of four noir crime novels set in West Africa featuring Bruce Medway; two thrillers set in Portugal during the Second World War and a series of four thrillers set in Seville featuring the detective Javier Falcon, which is now published in 28 countries and is currently being filmed by Sky Atlantic.
