Two new titles by Shuttle Island author Dennis Lehane are slated to be published, following a deal made at the London Book Fair and reported on April 21 by The Bookseller. The first title is Moonlight Mile, the sixth novel in Lehane's Kenzie-Gennaro series, while the second is a follow-up to the author's 2008 novel The Given Day.

Lehane's previous nine novels include Shutter Island, Mystic River, and Gone, Baby, Gone, which have been made into films and gone on to be best-sellers.

Moonlight Mile: The 6th and Final Patrick and Angie Detective Novel, which focuses on private investigators Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro, will be published in the UK by Little, Brown in spring 2011 and by William Morrow in the US on November 30. The second book will follow The Given Day protagonist Danny Coughlin's younger brother, Joe, as a gangster in the 1920s.
