The rights to all five of the Clare Hart-books, Daddy’s Girl, Like Clockwork, Blood Rose, Gallows Hill and Water Music, published in South Africa by Jonathan Ball Publishers, have been snapped up by Witness Impulse, a new digital mystery, suspense, and thriller line. Weisman said, “Dr. Clare Hart is one of the strongest thriller heroines I’ve encountered, and I’m so happy to introduce her to a US audience”.

Earlier this year, the UK rights to the Clare Hart-series were acquired by Head of Zeus in the UK. Isobel Dixon of Blake Friedman, who brokered both deals, shared the latest news on the agency’s website:

Isobel Dixon is delighted to announce that North American rights in Margie Orford’s highly acclaimed Clare Hart series have been acquired by Margaux Weisman for the Witness Impulse list. Witness, an imprint of William Morrow/HarperCollins, is an innovative new digital mystery, suspense, and thriller line. It launches in October 2013 and is already home to a host of internationally bestselling authors. They have bought all five of the Clare Hart titles: DADDY’S GIRL, LIKE CLOCKWORK, BLOOD ROSE, GALLOWS HILL and WATER MUSIC.

Margaux Weisman of Witness says: “Margie Orford is unlike any other writer in our stable. Her books will help us take the Witness brand to the next level. Dr. Clare Hart is one of the strongest thriller heroines I’ve encountered, and I’m so happy to introduce her to a US audience.”
