UK and Commonwealth Rights for Liad Shoham titles acquired by Scribe

Henry Rosenbloom at Scribe has acquired UK and Commonwealth rights for Liad Shoham’s titles Line Up and Asylum City. Scribe is an award-winning independent publishing house that has been publishing books for more than 35 years in Australia and has just set up in the UK.

Liad Shoham is the author of six critically acclaimed crime bestsellers in his native Israel. His latest, Asylum City went straight into the bestseller list when it was released in March.

Line Up is due to be released in the US in September and has received some great pre-publication reviews with Publishers Weekly calling it a “brilliantly constructed crime thriller”. Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Paranoia and Buried Secrets adds “This is a terrific book - a marvel of tight plotting, spare prose, and relentless pacing. It's refreshingly cynical, deeply exciting, and an exciting introduction to an author who's set to become an international superstar.”
