Caffeine Nights CEO, Darren Laws said. “We are always looking for ways to get our authors and books into new territories and it will be interesting to see how the Korean market takes to a truly British crime thriller. We want to thank Monika for making this deal possible.”

Carol Bridgestock, one half of the writing team with husband, retired Detective Superintendent of West Yorkshire Police, Bob Bridgestock also commented. “A good story is universal, though when we began writing the Dylan series, we never for a moment envisaged a Korean version of Dylan. It’s very exciting.”
