Angry Robot’s crime imprint, Exhibit A, has acquired two titles by debut Canadian author Dan Newman.
The Clearing is a neo-Gothic chiller, which tells the story of how four boys walked into a Caribbean jungle in 1976, but only three came back alive. They blamed what happened on a mythical monster, but now almost forty years later the truth is about to come out.
Rees said, “This is a terrifying novel, dealing with our fear of the unknown and our capacity to be tricked into madness. It will appeal to fans of both Shutter Island and Stand By Me and will leave readers too scared to turn out the light.”
Exhibit A will be publishing The Clearing in November 2013 simultaneously in the UK and US.
