We are delighted to share the news that commissioning editor Emily Gowers has acquired world all language rights, including audio, film and TV for three books in a new crime thriller series from bestselling author Carolyn Arnold. 

The first book in the series will publish in January 2021 and stars the driven, haunted Detective Amanda Steele, who finds herself investigating the murder of the man responsible for the deaths of her husband and daughter.

Emily said,

‘I am so thrilled to be working with Carolyn on this new series. In Amanda, Carolyn has created an incredible lead detective; smart, motivated and real, from the opening chapter Amanda’s strength and pain draws in the reader and keeps us rooting for her right to the final bitter reveal. I can’t wait to publish this book and show readers what has me so excited about it!’

Carolyn said,

‘I’m excited to be partnering with Bookouture and joining their stable of talented authors. I’ve seen what this company has accomplished, and I love the idea of becoming part of the family. Emily is an absolute pleasure to work with and she shares my vision of not only bringing the Amanda Steele series to the world but also to great heights.’
