Hera sign two high-octane thrillers from crime author PD Viner

July 15, 2021

Hera are delighted to announce that they have acquired two fast-paced thrillers from bestselling author, PD Viner. The first book will be published in early 2022, with the second following later that year. WEL rights, including audio, were acquired directly from the author by Publishing Director, Keshini Naidoo.

Keshini Naidoo said of the deal:

‘Sometimes you get a submission that demands you drop everything and read – and PD Viner’s thriller is absolutely that. Written in real-time thirty-minute chapters, this twisted tale of Ben and Mia Kingdom kicks off with a frantic phone call at midnight, leading into a night that neither of them will ever forget. It asks the question – how far would you go for the one you love? For Ben and Mia, this question will force them to step out of their comfortable middle-class existence to confront the darkest sides of humanity, as well as each other… and the result is a thriller that you will not be able to put down.

The very epitome of a one-sitting read, the Hera team have been talking about this to everyone as soon as we read it, and we cannot WAIT to launch it to the world next year! I’ve long been an admirer of PD Viner’s crime novels and am just so thrilled that he will be joining us with this new writing direction.’

PD Viner commented:

‘I’m really pleased to move from Ebury to Hera with my new dark, twisty and emotional psych thriller Last Night Together. I love my characters Ben and Mia, and the way they fight to get their lives back — just like we all have to these days. I am excited to work with Keshini and Lindsey, they are both movers and shakers in this industry and I’m looking forward to the ride.’
