News for 2009

Posted by on
  • Font size: Larger Smaller

2009 is already shaping up to be a busy one for Inspector Devlin. In March, a Devlin short story, The Stolen Child, will feature in Maxim Jakubowski’s anthology Mammoth Book of Best British Crime, alongside stories by Colin Dexter, Alexander McCall Smith and others.  

April sees the hard back release of the third Devlin novel, Bleed a River Deep, as well as the paperback release of the second book in the series, Gallows Lane. Later in the year, the good Inspector will feature in a short story based on the Irish myth of Finneagas for a short story collection, Myths and Mobsters, being edited by Gerard Brennan and Mike Stone. Brian will also be contributing to a collection of essays on Irish Crime Fiction being edited by Declan Burke, Adrian McKinty and Gerard Brennan alongside a host of other Irish crime novelists.  Meanwhile,  St Martin's Press will publish Gallows Lane in the USA in September in hardcover. 

To support this year’s releases, Brian will be doing a short book tour in Scotland with Peter James and Anne Cleeves, in March, stopping off in various locations including Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen before culminating in a panel at the Glasgow Book Festival on 13th March. In May he’ll be participating in Bristol CrimeFest and in July will be one of the panellists discussing Irish Noir at the Theakston’s Old Peculiar Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate. More details of these and other regional events to mark the launch of the latest titles will follow soon. 

Finally we're delighted to announce that 2009 began with Green Park Films taking an option on the television rights for the Inspec tor Devlin series.

Thanks again for your support over the past year and every good wish to you and yours for 2009.
