We are delighted to announce that Storm has signed two psychological thrillers by author Jane Jesmond. Publisher Kathryn Taussig acquired World English rights in ebook, paperback and audio from Amanda Preston at Luigi Bonomi Associates.

The first book, which will publish in May, follows sculptor Louise, who is the victim of a hit-and-run car accident, along with her flatmate Elizabeth. But when Louise wakes in hospital, her life has been totally changed and she learns that her flatmate is not at all who she seemed to be. Before long, Louise realises that she’s in greater danger than ever before, but who can she trust?

This will be followed by a second book in 2025. Jane Jesmond also writes a crime thriller series starring climber Jen Shaw for VERVE Books.

Jane says,

“I am delighted to be working with Kathryn and the rest of the fabulous Storm team on my super-twisty psych suspense story – a new departure for me to complement my Jen Shaw series and standalone thrillers. I have a feeling exciting times are ahead for us all!”

Kathryn says,

“I was just completely glued to the page when I read Jane Jesmond’s writing for the first time – this book is unique but also delivers in all the ways a good psychological thriller should. The characters are compelling and nuanced, the plot provides twist after surprising twist and the central concept is so hooky I can’t stop thinking about it. We’re so delighted to be working with Jane and her agent Amanda on these books.”
