Two Lisa Jackson titles acquired by Mulholland

Two of suspense writer Lisa Jackson’s novels have been acquired by Hodder & Stoughton’s Mulholland imprint.

Dorie Simmonds did the deal for British and Commonwealth rights on behalf of Kensington Books with Mulholland editor Ruth Tross.

From The Bookseller:

Tross said: “I’m delighted to be building on Hodder’s years of achievement with Lisa Jackson and to be making her a star of the Mulholland list. She’s a number one bestseller in the States, and as the success of Karen Rose and Karin Slaughter shows, there’s a huge appetite for the thrilling suspense with a romantic edge that Lisa is so good at.”

The first book in the deal, Deserves to Die, is part of the Alvarez/Pescoli series, and will be released in August 2014. Standalone thriller Close to Home will be released in hardback in September.
