The Insider was published in 2009, when HarperCollins pre-empted UK rights with a six-figure publishing deal for Irish writer Ava McCarthy.

HarperCollins, who bought from McCarthy’s agent Laura Longrigg at MBA, describe the thriller as “a breath-taking page-turner, painted on an international canvas”. McCarthy’s debut novel was selected as Sainsbury’s Book of the Month.

Ava McCarthy’s second thriller, The Courier, was published in 2010, followed by Hide Me in 2011, and she is currently working on her fourth novel. McCarthy’s thrillers have been published in more than 18 countries worldwide.
