Caroline Lawrence to release Western Mysteries in 2011

16th March 2010

A new series from bestselling writer Caroline Lawrence will be published in 2011 by Orion Children's Books.

The writer, who created The Roman Mysteries series, will release the first instalment of her new The Western Mysteries series early in the summer of next year.

Entitled The Case of the Counterfeit Injuns, the novel will be followed by another three books, which detail the adventures of 12-year-old P.K. Pinkerton as he attempts to become a private eye in Virginia City during the 1860s silver boom.

Fiona Kennedy, a publisher with Orion Children's Books, commented: 'As with Caroline's Roman Mysteries we're confident that we can take P.K. and friends to a wide readership.'

Clare Pearson, the author's agent with Eddison Pearson, added: 'The first Western Mystery has award-winning potential and is certain to win acclaim.'

Last month, Lawrence, whose books include The Pirates of Pompeii and The Enemies of Jupiter, joined a campaign to save Colchester's Roman circus.

The site is the only known Roman chariot racing circuit in Britain and is at risk of being redeveloped.
