Publishing & Order: Dick Wolf gets into the book business

Dick_wolf_2
“Law and Order” creator Dick Wolf is getting into the book biz, signing a deal with HarperCollins imprint William Morrow to publish two novels.

According to the publisher, the first book (described a s across between “The Day of the Jackal” and “Three Days of the Condor”) centers on an NYPD detective and the Joint Terrorism Task Force, which attempts to stop a major terrorist attack in New York over the July 4 weekend.

William Morrow executive editor David Highfill secured the world English rights — including audio and E-book rights.

“As he has shown us in the authenticity and freshness of his TV work, Dick Wolf is a master of tightly woven, character-driven American stories that feel like they are happening right in front of you, right now, not last week or last year,” Highfill said. “He will bring just that sense of heightened immediacy and drama to this new novel.”

CHUNG-CHUNG!

Wolf, of course, is behind the upcoming “Law & Order: Los Angeles,” as well as incumbent series “Law & Order: SVU” and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.”
