Jane Isaac

Canelo has acquired two gripping psychological thrillers by Jane Isaac

Commissioning Editor Leodora Darlington has acquired World English Language rights to two new psychological thrillers by Jane Isaac from Caroline Montgomery at Rupert Crew Limited in a two-book deal.

One Good Lie is a novel packed with suspense and intrigue. The story revolves around two sisters who are still grieving their mother’s death. When another woman is killed on the night of their mother’s wake, the sisters must decide who in their lives they can trust. It soon becomes clear that everyone has something to hide, and perhaps they can’t even trust each other.

Leodora Darlington says, ‘I’m so delighted to be working with Jane and Caroline as Jane moves into a new area of the crime thriller market. Jane is an absolute pleasure to work with, and her compelling writing is a total joy to read. She has such brilliant instincts for writing suspense, and such wonderfully intriguing ideas. I was completely swept up in the story of One Good Lie, second-guessing every character until the reveal at the end, which totally blew me away! Readers are in for a real treat with Jane’s new novels.’

Jane Isaac says, ‘I’m thrilled to have signed a two-book deal with the cutting-edge and forward-thinking team at Canelo for psychological suspense. This is a new direction for me, and I couldn’t be in better hands with the wonderfully insightful Leodora Darlington as my editor. The story of two sisters, Ruby and Sophie, One Good Lie is packed to the rafters with surprise and intrigue. I can’t wait to share it with readers in June.’

Caroline Montgomery says, ‘I am absolutely delighted to be working with Leodora and Canelo on Jane Isaac’s first foray into standalone domestic noir. Their innovative and passionate curation of the list is inspiring, and with their exemplary author care, I know that Jane and One Good Lie have found the perfect home.’

Bestselling author Jane Isaac lives with her husband in rural Northamptonshire, UK. Her debut, An Unfamiliar Murder, was nominated best mystery in the eFestival of Words’ Best of the Independent eBook Awards, 2013. The follow up, The Truth Will Out, was Thriller of the Month in April 2014 on E-Thriller.com. Jane has since released three novels with Aria.

One Good Lie will be published in June 2021, in simultaneous ebook and mass market paperback formats. For more information please contact publicity@canelo.co.
