Publisher Kathryn Taussig has acquired World English rights for four historical mysteries by Pam Lecky from agent Thérèse Coen at Susanna Lea & Associates. The first three books in the Lucy Lawrence mystery series will publish in July 2024, with a fourth book to follow in October 2024.

The first book in the series, No Stone Unturned, was originally self-published by the author in 2019, to rave reviews. Set in 1886, it follows Lucy Lawrence – a young woman who learns upon the death of her husband that he’s been keeping some very dark secrets. With the help of the enigmatic Phineas Stone, Lucy must unravel the mystery of her husband’s passing before his dangerous past catches up with her.

Pam Lecky is also a successful author of World War Two historical novels for Avon, and has a new book with them – Under a Lightning Sky – publishing this summer.

Pam Lecky says of the acquisition,

“I am absolutely delighted to announce that I have now signed with Storm Publishing to bring the Lucy Lawrence Mysteries to an even wider audience. The series is now in the capable hands of the team at Storm, and I look forward to bringing readers some new Lucy and Phineas adventures very soon. Thanks, as always, to my wonderful agent, Thérèse Coen, Susanna Lea & Associates, for all her hard work on my behalf.”

Kathryn Taussig says,

“I loved Lucy, the heroine of this series, from the start. She’s smart, genuine and likeable, and someone you want to follow to the very last page… and beyond! The mysteries are completely gripping as well, and the setting is so atmospheric you can’t help but be totally immersed. I can’t wait to re-publish the first three and to release the next one in October. I feel very lucky to be working with Pam on these books!”
