Little Girl Lost Finds A New Home

News arrived during the week, via the very fine Euro Crime blog, that Brian McGilloway will be publishing two new Lucy Black novels. To wit:
Constable & Robinson has acquired two new novels from crime writer Brian McGilloway, with the author moving from Pan Macmillan, where he was published by Macmillan New Writing, for the new titles.
  Publisher James Gurbutt bought two novels featuring series character DS Lucy Black.
  The first novel will be the sequel to LITTLE GIRL LOST, which sold more than 180,000 in its e-book edition.
  180,000 copies? Holy moly.
  I reviewed LITTLE GIRL LOST for the Irish Times when it appeared in 20011, suggesting that it was / is “an impressive statement of intent from an author whose reputation grows with each successive release.”
