If you’re one the many fans of Simon Gervais’ Mike Walton series, which began with last year’s The Thin Black Line and continues with this year’s A Red Dotted Line (out on November 1), then get your happy dance ready because Gervais just signed a new book deal to continue his series into next year.
I started hearing rumors yesterday that a deal was in the works, but didn’t learn that things had finalized until early this morning. Still, it wasn’t confirmed until Gervais responded to my initial tweet.
Heard a rumor that @GervaisBooks has a book deal to release the third novel in his Mike Walton series next year. Waiting for him to confirm!

We can’t hide anything from @TheRealBookSpy. He knows even before the news is official.

I’ve since gotten my hands on the official announcement, which should come out sometime tomorrow. Scroll down to check it out:
“International bestselling author and former federal agent Simon Gervais’s third installment in his Mike Walton thriller series A THICK CRIMSON LINE in which a husband and wife counter-terrorism team must stop two generations of sleeper agents bent on destroying the American political apparatus.”
Congrats to Simon and his team, as this is a great day for thriller fans. If you haven’t read Gervais’ books, I definitely recommend checking them out. Also, check back in a few days to my full review of A Red Dotted Line.
