As I blogged at SHOTS CONFIDENTIAL, I thought to draw your attention to this:
On 6 April, Macmillan New Writing will publish Borderlands by young Irish author Brian McGilloway. It is the first in a brilliant new series of crime fiction novels featuring Inspector Benedict Devlin. As you will see from the attached press release, Borderlands is a gripping and remarkably well written debut. It is tightly plotted with several intertwining stories and an exceptionally strong voice.
Crime fiction reviewer Ayo Onatade has already described the book as "a highly tense, taut debut novel with the same intensity one has come to expect from established authors."
Brian's equally dazzling second novel Gallows Lane is going to be published by Macmillan New Writing next April and Pan Macmillan has just signed Brian up for a three book deal, making McGilloway the first MNW discovery to find a long-term home with Macmillan.
