The Whitecliff series is coming in 2023.

News from Bookouture.

We are thrilled to share that we have re-signed contracts with even more of your favourite thriller authors.

We’re mega-excited to share that we have signed a four-book mystery series with bestselling author Kerry Wilkinson. Associate Publisher Ellen Gleeson acquired World All Languages rights direct from the author in a four-book deal, bringing Kerry’s total titles with Bookouture up to 39. Set in the fictional coastal town of Whitecliff, the atmospheric, character-led amateur sleuth series will publish in quick succession from January 2023.

Ellen said,

‘Working with Kerry is incredibly rewarding and exciting as an editor, because he is quite literally brimming with ideas. Only a few weeks will go by, and he’ll have written another twisty, addictive, and somehow perfectly-plotted novel. I’ll never know how he does it, but the Whitecliff series has it all: properly shocking plot twists, wry and witty observations about small-town life, and a duo of mystery-solving sleuths whose unlikely friendship is a delight to witness. I know Kerry’s legion of fans will be thrilled to see him return to series writing, and I know his sharp commercial writing instincts combined with Bookouture’s nimble digital publishing will spell success for Whitecliff.’

Kerry said,

‘I’m excited to launch my first new series in six years – and my first original one with Bookouture. I’ve wanted to do a non-police mystery series for a long time and, though four books in four months is quite the start, we’ve been planning this for a while.’
