Oh this is just fantastically awesome

I know I’ve said in a bunch of places that I’m a huge fan of Paul Johnston’s work. And with good reason because his two series – the first set in a futuristic, alternate history version of Edinburgh, and the second set in contemporary Greece featuring PI Alex Mavros — are excellent. But until now, he’s had little luck cracking the US market, something that’s been rectified:

Dagger winner and Scottish author Paul Johnston’s THE DEATH LIST, about

a crime writer who finds himself hunted by a serial killer with a

deadly agenda, to Linda McFall at Mira, in a two-book deal, by Broo

Doherty of Wade & Doherty Literary Agency.

Very welcome news, indeed.
