We’re over the moon to announce that Editorial Director Emily Gowers has acquired World English Language rights from Hattie Grünewald of The Blair Partnership, for two psychological thrillers from USA Today and Amazon #1 bestseller Sue Fortin.

The first thriller will publish in February 2024. When Siobhan receives a call from a stranger claiming to have found her missing sister Kathleen’s purse, she drops everything to return to her rural Irish hometown and find out what happened to her sister. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more dangerous her journey becomes, for Siobhan and those closest to her…

Sue says,

“When Emily wondered if I’d be interested in pitching a proposal for two thrillers, I jumped at the chance! Emily’s enthusiasm for the ideas was so encouraging and I was thrilled when she said she wanted to publish them. I’m delighted to be working with Emily and the team at Storm bringing more suspense stories to readers.”

Emily says,

“I still remember the first time I read one of Sue’s novels, staying up frantic with tension, turning the pages, determined to uncover the truth. I am beyond excited that I am working with her now on these two exceptional ideas, and I simply cannot wait for readers to be as hooked as I was.”

Hattie says,

“It’s a real joy for an agent when a publisher and author are completely aligned, and I am over the moon about Sue’s new partnership with Storm. A new psychological thriller from Sue Fortin is the kind of event to mark in your diary, because you know you’ll have to drop everything to finish reading.”
