Here’s something shiny and new: the cover for the upcoming British edition of Phantom Instinct. And yes, the novel has a different title for the UK. Just as translations usually have different titles (in Germany The Dirty Secrets Club is called Die Biechte — “The Confession”), different countries sometimes give a book a new title that the publisher thinks will connect the best with local readers.
As for M.G. Gardiner — British readers also love authors with initials. It’s me.
And the novel is exactly the same. From the opening shootout where Harper Flynn and Aiden Garrison fight flames and gunmen, down to the American spelling.
It will be published in the UK on 20 November.
You know, just in time for the holidays. Because what’s a better way to spend a chilly dark December in Britain, than reading a rip-roaring thriller?
