New 'Western' Series from Roman Mysteries Author

| No Comments

Orion Children's Books have announced the acquisition of a new series from the bestselling author of THE ROMAN MYSTERIES, Caroline Lawrence.

In a major deal, negotiated with Clare Pearson of Eddison Pearson Ltd, publisher Fiona Kennedy acquired World English Language (excluding US and Canada) and translation rights for THE WESTERN MYSTERIES: THE CASE OF THE COUNTERFEIT INJUNS and three further 'cases' in the series. US rights will be sold on behalf of Clare Pearson by Brenda Bowen at Sanford J. Greenburger Associates in New York.

Set in Virginia City, Nevada Territory during the 1860s silver boom, the books will follow the varying fortunes of twelve year-old P.K. Pinkerton in a quest for the truth, a family, and the ultimate goal: a position as a 'Private Eye' at the Pinkerton Detective Agency in Chicago.

The first case will be published in hardback in early summer 2011.
