The third Lucy Black novel, Preserve the Dead, is due out at the start of August, except, in the US, it will be called The Forgotten Ones. The idea of a book having two names in two different territories is not unusual but it can be confusing. The same thing happened with Hurt which, in the US, was called Someone You Know.
