Coming Soon: WHERE IS ANYBODY? by Simon R. Green

This summer, Severn House are due to publish WHERE IS ANYBODY?, the fifth novel in Simon R. Green‘s acclaimed Gideon Sable urban fantasy series! The novel will be available in both the UK and North America, from August 6th. Here’s the synopsis…

Legendary master thief and conman Gideon Sable must pull off an impossible heist to save his partner’s life in this fast-paced supernatural thriller from New York Times bestselling British fantasy author Simon R. Green

Gideon Sable specializes in stealing the kind of things that can’t usually be stolen. But these days the legendary master thief is officially retired from the caper game. Now, instead of pulling off elaborate heists with his crew of supernatural specialists, he runs a magical shop in the heart of London with his partner Annie Anybody. Still, he can’t resist occasionally going out in the night to steal things when Annie’s not looking. For old times’ sake – and for the joy of the con.

But after one of his late-night illicit jaunts, Gideon returns to the shop to find that while he’s been stealing, someone else has been hard at work… stealing from him. I have taken Annie Anybody, reads the note on the countertop. If you ever want to see her again, you must find and steal Time’s Arrow. You have forty-eight hours.

Stealing the legendary Arrow isn’t a challenge; it’s certain death. But Gideon will stop at nothing to save Annie from their unknown enemy – with or without the help of his talented, terrifying former crew…

Severn House has published all of Green’s Gideon Sable novels to date, in both the UK and North America:

Here are just a few of the great reviews the series has received so far…

‘This novel by the author of the terrific Ishmael Jones series is a treat for anyone who relishes the blending of alternate-world fantasy, urban fantasy, and the caper novel. Exciting, witty, and stuffed full of fun.’ — Booklist on THE BEST THING YOU CAN STEAL

‘[Green] gives an urban fantasy twist to Oceans 11.’ — Publisher’s Weekly on THE BEST THING YOU CAN STEAL

‘This book is pure fun.’ — Grimdark Magazine on THE BEST THING YOU CAN STEAL

‘It’s a wonderfully imagined setting, which will be no surprise for those familiar with Green’s oeuvre. The Sable novels make perfect fare for fans of urban fantasy, thrillers, or caper novels (or, especially, blends of all three).’ — Booklist on A MATTER OF DEATH AND LIFE

‘I had a cracking good time with Gideon Sable and his more-misfit-than-usual crew as they took on Las Vegas. Calling this book a fantastic, slightly supernatural version of Ocean’s Eleven – complete with ALL the wisecracks – would be more accurate, and more fun, than anyone might have expected.’ — Reading Reality on A MATTER OF DEATH AND LIFE

‘[F]eatures a crew of criminals with hearts of gold and one of the snarkiest antiheroes to ever front an urban fantasy series, turning the murder and mayhem up to 11 while telling a story where disaster is always just on the other side of the door.’ — Library Journal on WHAT SONG THE SIRENS SANG

‘A blast for urban-fantasy readers looking for a broken fourth wall riddled with dry-witted commentary, evil getting its just deserts, and the good walking away to fight the good fight.’ — Library Journal on NOT OF THIS WORLD

‘His characters are full-bodied, and their alternate-world Britain setting is gripping… The story here (and in the previous three series installments) is so strong that it should satisfy even the most demanding of caper-novel devotees. Keep ’em coming!’Booklist on NOT OF THIS WORLD
