William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, has introduced a new line of eBook original mystery, suspense and thriller novels called Witness.
The series, which launches in October, will feature original straight-to-digital content, as well as backlist short stories from Agatha Christie. The imprint has already acquired more than 100 full-length books, 10 of which will be published with the October debut. Witness will also publish digital versions of Agatha Christie’s short stories, including digital singles of the “Hercule Poirot” series and a single edition of the detective series with a foreword by Charles Todd.
“Our starting lineup gives an indication of the editorial scope of the imprint,” stated Dan Mallory, executive editor at William Morrow who is heading up Witness. ”It’s an exciting collection of brand-new content, international bestsellers not previously available in the U.S., and newly digitized backlist classics. It runs the gamut from police procedurals to literary suspense; historical mysteries to action thrillers.”
