Simon & Schuster UK has acquired three books by debut novelist MB Vincent, to launch the 'Jess Castle Mysteries' in Autumn 2018. Jo Dickinson, publishing director of fiction and audio, acquired World rights.
MB Vincent is the pseudonym for bestselling novelist Juliet Ashton and her husband, Matthew, a composer.
