All at L&R are thrilled to share news of two TV adaptations by the BBC of Mark Billingham’s 2008 novel, ‘In the Dark’, published by Sphere, and ‘Time of Death’ published by Little, Brown. BBC Drama North is adapting both books. ‘Filming will begin early next year and both series will launch in autumn 2016. No casting details have been revealed yet.’ Looking forward to hearing more.

‘The Trap’, a gripping new novel by Melanie Raabe which ‘follows a reclusive novelist who sees the man she believes killed her sister on television—and tries to entrap him using herself as bait’ has been acquired by Mantle’s Sam Humphreys following a very intense auction. Rights were acquired from Sarah Lutyens on behalf of Text Publishing in Australia. Mantle will publish in spring 2016. Read more here.
