Wednesday 7th June
Topping & Company Booksellers of Bath, York Street, Bath, Somerset BA1 1NG
With great delight we welcome back Ben Aaronovitch to the bookshop, this time for the brand new novella in the Sunday Times #1 bestselling Rivers of London series.
Before becoming a bestselling author, Ben was a screenwriter for Doctor Who and a bookseller. He now writes full time, and every book in his Rivers of London series has been a Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller.
Aaronovitch is also a trustee on the board of Cityread London and is a long-time supporter of Nigeria's premiere arts and cultural festival, The Ake Festival. He still lives in London, the city he likes to refer to as 'the capital of the world'.
THEY DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY ACROSS THE POND...
When retired FBI Agent Patrick Henderson calls in an 'X-Ray Sierra India' incident, the operator doesn't understand. He tells them to pass it up the chain till someone does.
That person is FBI Special Agent Kimberley Reynolds. Leaving Quantico for snowbound Northern Wisconsin, she finds that a tornado has flattened half the town - and there's no sign of Henderson.
Things soon go from weird to worse, as neighbours report unsettling sightings, key evidence goes missing, and the snow keeps rising - cutting off the town, with no way in or out...
Something terrible is awakening. As the clues lead to the coldest of cold cases - a cursed expedition into the frozen wilderness - Reynolds follows a trail from the start of the American nightmare, to the horror that still lives on today...
