Publisher Kathryn Taussig has acquired World All-Language rights including Film & Television for a three crime-thriller novels in a new series by critically acclaimed self-published author Louise Marley. All three books will publish in early 2024.

Set around the English village of Raven’s Edge, the series follows Detective Inspector Ben Taylor and his Detective Sergeant, Harriet March. Book one, currently published as Trust Me I Lie, begins when a mysterious young woman, Milla Graham, arrives in the picture-perfect village to investigate the murder of her mother eighteen years ago. But there’s already one Milla Graham buried in the churchyard and another about to be found dead in a derelict local mansion…

Louise says,

“Receiving an acceptance call from Storm Publishing was the very best Christmas present and a fabulous way to round off 2022. I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with Oliver and Kathryn, who already have such an amazing track record, and to join their list of super-talented authors. I had so much fun writing Trust Me I Lie that I can’t wait to develop it into a series featuring DI Ben Taylor, as he investigates murder mysteries in and around the quirky village of Raven’s Edge.” 

Kathryn says,

“I am absolutely thrilled to be working with Louise to develop this new series from her previously self-published novel Trust Me I Lie. Her writing is warm, quirky and funny and her stories are twisty and unputdownable. This series will be an amazing addition to Storm’s first year of publishing and I know it will be a huge hit with readers too. I can’t wait for more of you to get to know the amazing characters of DI Ben Taylor and DS Harriet March!”
