The return of Cotton FBI!

A new time; a new hero; a new mission; Cotton FBI is a modern digital cult-series for a new generation of readers

Published by Bastei Entertainment in bi-monthly instalments
February - July 2014

£1.49 per episode

Cotton FBI is an exciting new eBook series reinventing the hugely popular Jerry Cotton novels, first published in 1954, with over one billion copies sold in Germany alone. The series provides a new way for readers to access and enjoy great crime fiction and will be released in bi-monthly instalments in the coming months.

As with the new James Bond books, the Cotton FBI series re-imagines the stories of a much-loved crime-fighting hero; Jerry Cotton, the world famous fictional detective, is reborn in an eBook series created specifically for the digital reader. Packed full of suspense and drama, Cotton FBI is set in the dark underbelly of New York and tells the story of one man’s mission to fight crime at any cost.

In episode one, The Beginning, a woman is brutally murdered and Jeremiah Cotton, a young cop with the NYPD, is determined to find the culprit. He suspects that the woman is the victim of a serial killer, but no one believes him and he is taken off the case. As Cotton embarks on an unauthorised investigation he encounters a secret division of the FBI, the ‘G-Team’, and the hotter the case gets the more his own fate - and that of his entire nation – hangs in the balance.

The series contains a total of 13 episodes which are on average 100 pages long and can be read as standalone stories. Episodes can be purchased from Amazon, the iBookstore, the Google Play Store, Kobo and NOOK.
