RC Bridgestock sold to Turkey in a three-novel deal

The deal was struck with the Turkish publisher Trend Yayınevi for the first three RC Bridgestock novels (Deadly Focus, Consequences and White Lilies). The deal was negotiated by Kalem Agency of Turkey and Monika Luukkonen Literary Agency.

Literary Agent Monika Luukkonen said: “I am very excited about this deal which shows that RC Bridgestock crime novels are starting to get more and more interest from publishers outside the UK.”

RC Bridgestock is husband and wife crime fiction authors, Bob and Carol Bridgestock. With 47 years of policing between them they write compelling police procedural novels set in Harrowfield, a fictional town in Yorkshire and feature Detective Inspector Jack Dylan.

Darren Laws from Caffeine Nights, the Bridgestock’s UK Publisher, said: “This follows on from the rights sale into South Korea earlier in the year and marks a fantastic year for Bob and Carol Bridgestock. They have been working as consultants with Red Productions on a new BBC crime drama Happy Valley, and ITV’s award winning crime drama series, Scott & Bailey.”

A fourth novel is about to be added to RC Bridgestock’s works with the publication of Snow Kills in November published by Caffeine Nights Publishing.

“Bob, Carol and I would like to thank Monika Luukkonen for her hard work in selling the rights to these titles,” Darren concluded.
