Historical crime for publisher's new print imprint
Endeavour Press has signed world English print and digital rights from Paul Moreton at the Bell Lomax Moreton Agency for The Felon Pleader by Michael Jecks, and from Broo Docherty at DHH Literary Agency for The Devil's Triptych (working title) by Imogen Robertson. The novels will be among the first from the former digital-only publisher to appear in print under its new Endeavour Ink imprint.
Amy Durant, Endeavour publishing director, said: "Both Richard Foreman, Endeavour's founder, and I have been great fans of Imogen and Michael's historical thrillers from the start. We are very excited to have acquired the next books in their respective series to be published as some of the first titles under Endeavour Ink."
The Felon Pleader is the latest in the prolific Jecks' Templar Medieval Mystery series, and the 34th outing for Sir Baldwin de Furnshill and his companion Bailiff Simon Puttock.
The Devil's Triptych consists of three novellas set in 1786 and starring Robertson's detective duo Westerman and Crowther. Robertson is the current chair of the Historical Writers' Association.
