Hannah Martian Inks Deal with Crooked Lane Books

November 15, 2023

Terri Bischoff at Crooked Lane Books has acquired Hannah Martian’s dual timeline mystery debut, LONG TIME GONE, to publish in the fall of 2024. Pitched for readers of Kristen Lepionka, P.J. Vernon, and Kelly J. Ford, it follows a young lesbian private investigator called to a small town in Wyoming to find the aunt who’d sent her away eight years before. Her search leads her to a mysterious ledger and clues about a prominent family who’d do anything to preserve their version of the truth behind the murder of one of their own.
