Wright Finds a New American Publisher

It always seemed odd that Edward Wright, after gaining critical acclaim for his John Ray Horn series (and a good deal of support from his UK publisher Orion) couldn’t find a US publisher for the third book and thereafter once Putnam decided to drop him. But now there’s some good news on the American front:

Shamus Award Winner Edward Wright’s DAMNATION FALLS, in which a

disgraced Chicago newspaper columnist agrees to ghostwrite a biography

of his childhood friend and former Tennessee governor, but instead

finds himself investigating a series of ghastly murders and a town

legend from the Civil War in the Tennessee hills, to Daniela Rapp at

Minotaur, in a nice deal, by Jonathan Lyons at Lyons Literary, on

behalf of Jane Conway-Gordon (NA).

About time this book saw the light of day over here.
