Random House Acquires Trilogy of YA Thrillers by Mark Frost

Random House Children's Books

In a press release today, Random House Children's Books announced the publisher had acquired Will West: The Epic, a trilogy of thrillers for young adults written by Mark Frost. The first book in the series, The Paladin Protocol, will be published in Fall 2012.

Will West "combines a sophisticated mystery with furiously-paced action and a twist of the paranormal. In the novel, the title character has spent his entire life trying to avoid any attention at the request of his parents. Then by sheer accident, Will scores off the charts on a nationwide exam and is recruited by an exclusive and somewhat mysterious prep school, the best school no one's ever heard of, with technology the likes of which no one's ever seen. At the same time, coincidentally—or not so—Will realizes he's being followed by men in dark hats, driving black sedans who pose a terrifying threat to his family. What follows is a series of events and revelations that places Will smack in the middle of a millennia old struggle between titanic forces."

Mark Frost is a novelist and television screewriter, whose credits include The Six Million Dollar Man, Hill Street Blues, and Twin Peaks. He published his first novel, The List of Seven featuring a young Arthur Conan Doyle, in 1993.
