NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HarperCollins Publishers today announced a major publishing agreement with #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva. The publisher has acquired world rights to six more books from the author, starting with The Other Woman in July 2018, with the intent to publish across all HarperCollins locations worldwide through its Global Publishing Program. This will be Daniel Silva’s 21st novel, and will feature Gabriel Allon, spy and art restorer, in an exciting confrontation with a dangerous new adversary.
“We are thrilled to expand our global publishing partnership with Daniel for six more books,” said Brian Murray, President and CEO of HarperCollins Publishers. “The energy, focus and passion for his books from our international publishing teams has driven foreign language growth in sales of each of his books, setting us up for continued international growth in the future.”
“My partnership with HarperCollins, both in the U.S. and internationally, has been one of the most successful in modern publishing, and I am thrilled that it will continue long into the future,” said Silva.
“Daniel Silva’s thrillers are outstanding: superbly written, sophisticated and compulsive. Silva has been consistently keeping pace with—or even getting ahead of—global politics, as he focuses on international crime, terrorism and intelligence issues with clarity and authority. It has been gratifying to see his audience growing book by book, not just in the U.S. but across the world. We’re all excited to contemplate six great new Silva novels in the future, starting with the marvelous The Other Woman,” said Jonathan Burnham, Publisher and President of Harper.
Silva was the first author to publish as part of the company’s Global Publishing Program. Since then, his books have been published by HarperCollins in 24 countries and 15 languages, hit bestseller lists in six markets, and seen a 60% percent increase in sales from The Heist to The English Spy and continued sustained growth with the publication of The Black Widow. For the seven novels Harper has published, sales have accumulated to 5.5 million copies worldwide.
Silva's critically acclaimed, bestselling series based around art restorer and spy Gabriel Allon is being developed into a television series by MGM—the home of James Bond and The Handmaid's Tale.
