Exhibit A, the new crime fiction imprint of award-winning publisher Angry Robot, has signed 4-time Emmy award-winning writer and producer, Terry Irving, for two novels
Exhibit A Commissioning Editor Emlyn Rees, bought World English, translation and dramatisation rights in Courier, plus an as-yet unnamed sequel, from Dean Krystek at Word Link USA.
Courier is the first in the Freelancer series of breakneck-paced thrillers, featuring Rick Putnam, a Vietnam veteran and motorcycle courier for one of Washington’s leading TV networks.
In addition to 4 Emmys, the author, Terry Irving, has also won 3 Peabody Awards and 3 DuPont Awards. He has been a producer, editor or writer with ABC, CNN, Fox and MSNBC.
Terry Irving commented: “I started my career racing through Washington on a motorcycle and getting published by Exhibit A is damn near the most exciting thing to happen since.”
Exhibit A Commissioning Editor Emlyn Rees said: “Courier is a super fast thriller, set in 1970s America, with a lead as cool as Easy Rider playing detective against a host of rogue US government elements determined to bury the truth.”
Exhibit A will publish Courier in May 2014 simultaneously in the UK and US in paperback and major ebook formats.
