Sphere has acquired World rights (including film and TV), for Lizzie Fry’s second novel Kill For It from Hattie Grunewald at The Blair Partnership. Sphere will publish in 2022 and it is a lead title for Frankfurt Book Fair 2021, the Little Brown Rights Team will be handling the rights.
Kill For It asks how far you would go for the thing you want most in the world.
Erin Goodman is a very good reporter. Up until recently, in fact, she was the best.
Cat Carwford suddenly seems to have the inside scoop, she’s always in the right place at the right time for the juiciest news reports.
When Cat just happens to be in the area when a murder is called in, Erin can no longer ignore the long run of coincidences giving Cat’s career a boost.
But Cat knows Erin is onto her. And Cat is more than happy to toy with her colleague, especially if it gets her an even bigger story to report on.
In the game of cat and mouse, there can be only one winner.
Andy Hine, Rights Director, said: ‘We had so much attention for Lizzie’s Fry’s debut novel, from both publishers and production companies and we are so looking forward to going out with Kill For It in earnest now, it is a real treat for anyone looking for a pacey, feminist thriller.’
