Yesterday Minotaur announced that mystery writer Nevada Barr was leaving her longtime publisher, Putnam, and signing on with them for her next three books in the Anna Pigeon series. The first book will appear in 2010.

In the official press release, Minotaur VP and Publisher Andrew Martin called Barr "a star author," saying that he was  "absolutely delighted to be welcoming her onto our list.”

Barr's final novel with Putnam, Borderline, was just released last month, and she has a stand-alone thriller, 13 1/2, coming from Vanguard Press on September 29.
