All3Media International and Century, an imprint of Penguin Random House, have announced “The Traitors: The Interactive Puzzle Book,” the official tie-in to the BAFTA award-winning BBC reality TV gameshow.

In “The Traitors,” readers must put their sleuthing skills to the test in a world of deception, betrayal and strategy. Placed in a castle in the Scottish Highlands, players must figure out if fellow players are faithful or traitors.

In the book, the decisions the reader makes will decide what happens next as they can choose their route through the book – unless they take a wrong turn and are murdered by the traitors. It is suitable to be played alone or with others and includes over 20 standalone games to play as a pair or in a group – all with cunning twists readers will recognize from “The Traitors.”

The book is written by Alan Connor, author of “Richard Osman’s House of Games.” Amanda Lovett, contestant and ‘Traitor’ from series one, provides the foreword for the book. Publication will be supported by a major, world-building publicity, marketing and retail campaign.

Zennor Compton, editorial director, Century Non-Fiction, acquired U.K. and Commonwealth rights, excluding Canada, from All3Media International following a competitive auction. The book will be published Nov. 23 by Century in hardback and eBook.

“Ever since the show aired, ‘The Traitors’ fans have been asking how they can be part of the wonderful world of the show and I’m so excited that Penguin is publishing the tie-in book to give this opportunity,” says Lovett. “The book is full of all the mystery, suspense and fun of the show and I can’t wait for its release in November.”

“Like the rest of the U.K., I became completely obsessed with ‘The Traitors’ at the end of the last year, as did the rest of the Century team,” says Compton. “We’re thrilled to be publishing the series’ official book, which will fully immerse fans into the treacherous world of the show, with twists and turns at every page. Fun for all the family, the book is set to match the success of the show.”

“A nail-biting psychological game of suspense and deception, ‘The Traitors’ is as addictive on the page as it is onscreen,” says Jane Sharp, vice president, commercial licensing, All3Media International. “With the passion and expertise of Century’s team and writer, Alan Connor, I’m delighted that faithful fans and new players will be able to lose themselves in the vivid stories and immersive gameplay of ‘The Traitors’ official book.”
