Greg Rucka To Pen New Thriller Novels for Mulholland

Later this month we'll join Queen & Country's Tara Chace on The Last Run, but that's hardly the end of writer Greg Rucka's adventures in prose. He's just inked a new three book deal with suspense publisher Mulholland Books, promising an all new series of novels about guns and lying and backstbbery. According to the publisher, the new franchise focuses on a reverse Bourne Identity plot, with a former Delta Forces operator coming to blows with his very powerful colleagues. Reached for comment, our own Chris Neseman made a soft moaning sound. 

As a big ol' fan of crime fiction myself, I've been following Mulholland's wonderful writers' blog with great interest for a few weeks now. The site runs essays from the top writers in the crime and suspense tradition on a number of relevant topics, from writing process to influences, and industry trends. Coinciding with the announcement of his book deal, they've also posted Rucka's thoughts on research and authenticity in crime writing. It's a subject I've been thinking about quite a bit lately, and I found the essay an invaluable bit of advice. You'll also find posts from other comic creators like Charlie Huston and Duane Swierczynski


  1. Wait a second, this article has been posted all day, and NO ONE commented? I HAD to because 1) I like Rucka and 2) I don’t want Paul to feel ignored. 🙁

  2. Bunch of ignorant savages!

    If you’ve never read Rucka prose, then you have blown it.

  3. Rucka’s novels are excellent. If you consider yourself a fan and don’t know Atticus Kodiak, then shame.

  4. This is great news. I’ve enjoyed the first two Kodiak novels, in addition to the Q&C ones…and I’ve already got a hold at the library for "The Last Run" which should be out in a couple weeks (!)

  5. I’ll be reading this.
