New French Book Look!

Even though they are not due for publication until the autumn, these new jacket designs from the French publisher Syros are so striking I had to give them an airing. [Okay, viewing?] I think they’re just great!


Part of their Rat Noir series, primarily aimed at Young Adult readers, Blue Watch, is set in WW2, during the London Blitz, while Nick’s Blues, is a reissue of a contemporary teenage story, first published in France to considerable success in 2005.


Just to be clear, despite the English titles, both of these books are being published in France in translation. As yet, there is no published English language version of Blue Watch, though Nick’s Blues is available from Five Leaves publications as a paperback or an ebook.

  1. Hullo John Harvey

    I thoroughly enjoyed Darkness, Darkness – as I have all your books, but especially the Resnick ones. I’m sorry to see him go….. finally. Or so it seems. Couldn’t you give him another airing ? or two ? Even in a short novella, or a short story or two ! Please.

    Anyhow – thanks for all the reading. I have all your books – one of these days I guess they’ll go to a community library for others to enjoy.

    New Zealand

  2. Jenny : Good to hear from you. Pleased the Resnick books have made such a positive impact. I wonder where in Northland you are based. When I was visiting NZ with my family some 10 years ago we drove north of Auckland, visited the Bay of Islands, and then went up to Cape Reinga.
