Perry is one of America’s premier thriller writers and the Mysterious Press’s bestselling author. We are expecting new blurbs from Lee Child, Nelson DeMille, and Jeffery Deaver for The Bomb Maker.

Stephen King tweeted about reading The Bomb Maker to his 4.5 million followers.

The Bomb Maker is to be developed by Fox with the title The Long Walk, with CSI veteran Carol Mendelsohn attached as writer and Morris Chestnut (Rosewood) as star, announced on Deadline.

An Amazon best book of the month in the Mysteries & Thrillers category. One of Entertainment Weekly’s 50 most anticipated books of 2018. One of Lisa Levy’s 5 crime must-reads for January (Literary Hub).

With Perry’s most recent thriller, The Old Man, we’ve seen a significant jump up in sales, especially in ebook—already 5,000 more digital copies have been sold than in the life of the previous book. It was also an Indie Next pick for January 2017.

The Old Man, about a former military intelligence agent on the run for decades from a job gone wrong in Libya, took on a more international canvas and bigger plot than Perry’s previous novels. His new novel, The Bomb Maker—which alternates between the perspective of an anonymous bomb maker working for a shadowy terrorist organization and the LAPD Bomb Squad—feels even bigger. We hope the upward trend in sales will continue with this high-octane plot.

The Old Man is being adapted for a TV series starring Samuel L. Jackson (in his first TV series commitment) by Jonathan E. Steinberg (co-creator of Black Sails), Warren Littlefield (executive producer of Fargo and Handmaid’s Tale), and Fox 21 TV Studios, and is already getting industry buzz, including a piece in Deadline.

Perry’s 2016 novel, Forty Thieves, was a finalist for the Strand Critics Award for Best Novel and was named one of Booklist’s Top 10 Crime Novels of the Year. A String of Beads was a national bestseller.

In a New York Times Book Review “By the Book” interview, Stephen King named Perry among a list of “unheralded writers” we should be reading.

Perry co-wrote two books in a #1 New York Times bestselling series with Clive Cussler.

Poison Flower was named one of the 101 Best Crime Novels of the Past Decade by Booklist; Vanishing Act was named one of the 100 best mysteries of the twentieth century by the Independent Mystery Booksellers' Association; and Metzger’s Dog was voted one of the best 100 thrillers ever by NPR listeners.

We have a significant investment in Perry, with five previous titles in print, another under contract, and a guaranteed marketing spend/travel budget for each book. We will continue to promote the backlist through BookBub and other promotions
