Crowley's previous books include Can Anybody Help Me? (2014), Are You Watching Me? (2015) and One Bad Turn (2017), featuring protagonist DS Claire Boyle.
RTÉ's Arts and Media Correspondent Sinéad Crowley has signed a two-book deal with UK publishing house Head Of Zeus, with The Belladonna Maze, due to arrive in September 2022.
Described as stylish, dual timeline family saga, spanning three generations of women who inherit a great country house in the west of Ireland, haunted since the famine of the 1840s, The Belladonna Maze marks a change of pace for Crowley after a series of acclaimed crime novels.
"It is always thrilling when a distinguished author surprises you with something completely new and unexpected," Head Of Zeus Senior Editor Rosie de Courcy said.
"From the very first page, I knew I wanted to publish this lovely novel."
"Rosie de Courcy has edited some of my favourite books. I loved writing The Belladonna Maze during the strange months of 2020. It was a joy to open my laptop at night and escape to Grace’s world and I can’t wait to share that world with readers."
Crowley has been the Arts and Media Correspondent for RTÉ News and Current Affairs since 2006, also acting as a lecturer in journalism at Dublin City University since 2019. Crowley has also contributed COVID-19 coverage on RTÉ's One O'Clock News, Six One News and the Nine O'Clock News since the pandemic arrived.
