More Dexter for Orion 23.03.09 Katie Allen writing in The Bookseller
Orion has acquired two further novels in the Dexter series by Jeff Lindsay, about the serial killer who only kills "very bad people".
Kate Mills, deputy publishing director for Orion fiction, bought UK and Commonwealth rights from New York literary agent Nick Ellison. The new novel, as yet untitled, will be published in August 2010, and will follow Dexter’s struggles with the new emotions provoked by fatherhood.
Lindsay said: "I am delighted to place my future in the UK in the hands of the wonderful people at Orion, who have proved that they are absolutely tops in the game, and I look forward to a long and happy relationship."
Orion published Dexter in the Dark, the first in the series, in 2004. The novels have been translated into an Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated US television series.
