Simon & Schuster Sign Casey Hill For Two More

Irish husband and wife writing team Melissa and Kevin Hill have signed a two book deal with Simon & Schuster for two further novels in their Reilly Steel series. The books will be published in 2013 and 2014.

The couple originally signed for a two book deal in 2010 and the first book, Taboo, was published this year. The second in the series will be released in 2012.

The couple’s agents, Curtis Brown, also announced that the books would be adapted for TV:

Ecosse will produce a forensic-based TV series featuring American-born Reilly Steel – a Quantico trained forensic investigator who comes to Dublin to head up the GFU, a new state-of-the-art Irish crime lab – and Chris Marshall, a city homicide detective who is hiding a mysterious illness.

According to The Bookseller: ‘S&S recently published Taboo by Casey Hill [in the UK], which hit number 3 in the Heatseekers chart in the week ending 15th July.’
