Announcing Panic: The Ultimate Edition

by Jeff Abbott on February 22, 2011

I am thrilled to announce that my first young adult novel will be published in the UK on July 7, 2011 by Atom Books/LittleBrown UK. For my first book for teens, I have taken one of my most popular novels, Panic, and transformed its hero, Evan Casher, into a sixteen-year old boy. Evan is a student who discovers that everything in his life–his parents, his girlfriend, his worst enemy–is a lie. I had a fantastic time reimagining the world of Panic (which has sold over 400,000 copies in the UK).  PANIC: THE ULTIMATE EDITION is a book rewritten from the ground up–with new villains, new dangers, and new challenges.  Now Evan Casher is a desperate but brave teenager fighting to avenge his mother, save his father, and discover the truth about his life.

I’ll have much more to say about PANIC: THE ULTIMATE EDITION in the weeks to come, but know that those in the UK can preorder it from their local or online bookstores. I don’t know when there will be a release date yet for the US or other countries, but I’ll be sure and keep you informed. I’m really excited about this book  and I hope you will be, too. Thanks! Here’s the preliminary cover flat:

    Hi Jeff – this is truly exciting!

    Really looking forward to reading and reviewing the updated “now with more content” edition of Panic. It sounds right up our street!

    Dear Jeff

    I have just finished reading your trilogy about Whit Mosley and was so disappointed that you left him hanging – as it were.
    I am always looking for new authors as I read far too much!
    At the same time as reading your books I discovered another author i.e. Jonathon Stroud whom I have been reading at the same time so imagine my surprise when looking through your blog to find you too had read and enjoyed his books.
    A bit spooky – for me.
    Anyway, whilst my comments are pretty old compared to your current posts I will be reading more but just wondered if you may ever return to poor old Whit?
    Best Regards

    Thanks, Nick. I may do another Whit novel in the future, not sure yet. Having just launched the Sam Capra series with Adrenaline and writing a YA novel with Panic: Ultimate Edition, my plate is kind of full . . .
