Serpents in the Cold

IMG_1812Serpents in the Cold by Thomas O’Malley & Douglas Graham Purdy has been picked up by Mulholland Books US & UK (Little Brown US, Hodder & Stoughton UK).  Target date: 2014.

Ruth Tross at Mulholland Books/Hodder & Stoughton has acquired SERPENTS IN THE COLD by Thomas O’Malley and Douglas Graham Purdy.

O’Malley is the author of Province of the Saints and This Magnificent Desolation, while his co-author Purdy works in film studies and is a horror writer. Their collaboration takes them to Boston in 1951, the coldest winter on record, where a serial killer is stalking the streets.

Tross commented: “Serpents in the Cold tells the story of two damaged men struggling to find redemption by solving a crime; it is also the story of a city attempting to reinvent itself and the creation of a new America. It’s both gripping and heart-breaking, and perfect for fans of Dennis Lehane and James Ellroy.”
