Three new Torchwood paperback novels have been revealed by BBC Books and will act as prequels to the upcoming series 4, Miracle Day. The titles are "First Born", "Long Time Dead" and "The Men Who Sold The World" due for release on September 6th, September 20th, and October 4th.
"First Born" by James Goss
Gwen and Rhys are on the run. Rhys was hoping this meant a windswept cottage on a cliff top, but he’s had to settle for a miserable caravan in the isolated village of Rawbone. With the locals taking an unhealthy interest in their daughter, Gwen and Rhys start to realise that something is very wrong - something with echoes of a life they thought they’d left behind.
As they uncover the village’s terrible past, Gwen discovers that Torchwood will never leave them behind, and now she and Rhys stand alone in defence of the Earth. And the children of Rawbone can only bring her closer to the secret forces that want her out of the way.
Based on the hit series created by Russell T Davies, First Born is a prequel to Torchwood: Miracle Day, starring John Barrowman and Eve Myles as Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper, with Kai Owen as Rhys Williams.

Cardiff Bay. The government has ordered the excavation of the wreckage of a secret underground base. DCI Tom Cutler is watching from a distance, fascinated by the process. There are people in his dreams. People he feels he should know.

A very special shipment the British government is keen to offload at almost any price. The Agency puts Rex Matheson on the case. As the strange deaths pile up, Rex realises there must be experimental tech out there, but someone is obstructing him at every turn - each time he seems to be catching up with the rogue unit, something puts him off the trail. Rex is the CIA’s golden boy - but has he met his match in the evasive Mr Wynter… ?
