Storm has acquired a new novel from Rachel Lynch, bestselling author of the DI Kelly Porter series. Kathryn Taussig, Publisher at Storm, has acquired World English rights in ebook, paperback and audio from Peter Buckman at The Ampersand Agency.

The new novel is a domestic thriller, and will publish in autumn 2024. The story revolves around three adult siblings and their partners, who meet at the isolated family home after the death of their father, ostensibly to read his will. Little do they know that each of them has a dangerous secret that’s about to be exposed in the most chilling of circumstances.

Lynch’s ongoing DI Kelly Porter series, as well as three other thrillers, have been published by Canelo. Lynch will continue to write for them alongside this new project.

Lynch says,

“I’m thrilled to be working with Kathryn and the team at Storm to bring my new psychological thriller to life. It’s an exciting opportunity to take my work to new readers and join a growing list of fantastic authors.”

Taussig says,

‘As a long-time lover of Rachel’s writing – most recently her chilling new standalone thriller The Rich – I feel hugely lucky to be working on this new psychological thriller with her. The central concept, combined with Rachel’s incredible talent for storytelling, has “addictive page-turner” written all over it! I speak for the entire Storm team when I say that the prospect of publishing this fabulous book next year has us truly jumping for joy.’
