Hodder acquires four Deon Meyer novels
29th July 2010
Deon Meyer is to release four new titles through Hodder, the
publisher has announced.
Hours, Meyer's most recent work, was launched by Hodder in
April to positive reviews and the firm hopes to emulate this
success with the new novels.
Nick Sayers, publishing director at Hodder, commented: 'Deon is
already a bestseller in many countries. With these new books, we
will bring him to a much wider readership.'
He also claimed Meyer's sales figures and his nomination for the
2010 CWA International Dagger for the best translated crime novel
demonstrate that the author is 'one of the finest crime thriller
writers in the world'.
Meyer's Thirteen Hours ultimately failed to scoop the
International Dagger, being beaten to the honour by The
Darkest Room by
Tonino Benacquista's Badfellas,
Arnaldur Indridason's Hypothermia
and The Girl
Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest by
Stieg Larsson were also shortlisted for the GBP 1,000
