NEW YORK (AP) — David Baldacci has decided to enter the fantasy world.

The best-selling thriller writer has a deal with Scholastic Inc. for a young adult novel, “The Finisher.” Scholastic, a top U.S. children’s publisher, announced Monday that the book is scheduled to come out in March.

Baldacci, the author of such popular thrillers as “Absolute Power,” has written for young people before. He recently contributed the final book, “Day of Doom,” for the Scholastic multimedia series “The 39 Clues.”
