Rights Sale: World Italian for Stealing John Hancock

OCTOBER 13, 2022

Turnstone Press is pleased to announce that World Italian Language Rights of H&A Christensen’s novel Stealing John Hancock have been placed with Italian-based publisher Les Flâneurs Edizioni.

Released under Turnstone’s Ravenstone imprint, Stealing John Hancock is the story of John “JP” Hancock who, after a nasty breakup and being scammed into an acting job that doesn’t exist, suddenly finds himself the unwitting victim of an identity theft that has police detective Nya Grey hot on his heels for multimillion-dollar real estate fraud he didn’t commit. With the police closing in, JP finds an unlikely ally in the Vindicator, a secretive and brilliant hacker who agrees to help clear his name by whatever means necessary.

Praise for Stealing John Hancock:

Stealing John Hancock bursts from the first page like a horse at the gate and never stops running. It’s a wild ride. With murderers willing to do anything to get what they want from JP, and federal agents only a step behind, you simply can’t put this book down. H&A Christensen have crafted an unforgettable story of stolen identities, where you can trust no one. Complications unfold so rapidly and are put to rest so smoothly that you won’t ever want this book to end. I’m just hoping there will be a sequel.

—Michelle Berry, author of the thriller Everything Turns Away
