Subject: Jolly Fish Press Acquires New Mystery/Horror Novel from Hillerman Prize-Winning Author
PROVO, UT—Jolly Fish Press (JFP) has signed a two-book deal with Hillerman Prize-winning author Kevin Wolf, acquiring his new horror series, Broke Heart.
When drifter, gambler, and disgraced newspaper reporter Kepler settles for a job digging a grave in Broke Heart in July of 1879, he finds himself at the center of a terrifying mystery, leaving a trail of death and destruction that only he can end. Was the victim whose grave Kepler is digging merely a drunk who’d fallen in the alley? A drunk that was set upon by ravaging animals before his body was discovered? And what of the rumor of a beautiful angel hovering over his body, her lips dripping with blood?
Meanwhile, a wealthy European hunter, Reficul, and his niece, the alluring and sensual Landry, appear in town. The two offer Kepler a position overseeing the construction of a lodge in the mountains overlooking Broke Heart, a job Kepler must keep secret from the townspeople. It's more money than the penniless Kepler had ever thought he'd see in his lifetime, but the cost will be more than he'd ever imagined a human could pay.
As more mutilated bodies are discovered in other Western mining towns, Kepler begins to realize the connection to Reficul. For the people of Broke Heart, and perhaps for Kepler himself, this realization may be too late.
Broke Heart, the first installment on the series, is set to be released in fall 2017. Subsidiary rights are available; The Gotham Group will be handling the film/TV rights. The series will be distributed by Independent Publishers Group.
Kevin Wolf is a member of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and Crested Butte Writers. His debut novel—and also Hillerman Prize winner—The Homeplace: A Mystery, was released by Minotaur Books in September 2016.
