In France, bestselling author Fred Vargas landed at #1 with a new Commissaire Adamsberg mystery, The Furious Army. Penguin will release a paperback edition of an earlier Adamsberg novel, An Uncertain Plan, in the U.S. in October, but has not yet acquired rights to the newest title. The #1 author in Spain in May, Camilla Läckberg, has a growing following in the U.S. Pegasus Books published her first book, The Ice Princesss, in the U.S. last spring and her second, The Preacher, in May, shipping 15,000 copies, Pegasus's largest first printing in its five-year history. Free Press bought paperback rights to Läckberg's first three titles and published Princess in trade paperback in March with Pocket Books doing a simultaneous mass market paperback release. The paperback editions of Preacher will be released next spring. Her newest edition of the series set in Fjällbacka topping the Spanish charts is The Angel Maker.
Leading the clean sweep of new books in the top four places on the German fiction bestsellers list are the American team of P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast with Tempted. American romance writer Karen Rose has had hits in Germany before, and she landed at #2 there last month with I Can See You. Her most recent book in the U.S., You Belong to Me, was released June 7 in paperback by Signet. The third new German fiction bestseller is by another American romance author, Susan E. Phillips. Call Me Irresistible was published by Morrow in the U.S. in January before becoming a bestseller for Blanvalet. Breaking the run of American romance writers on the German fiction list, Spanish novelist Carlos Ruiz Zafón landed at #4 with Marina.
