Thrill seekers rejoice, John Connolly is coming to town!

Connolly shot to the bestseller list with his debut, the first spine tingling Charlie Parker novel Every Dead Thing. From the from the first Connolly established himself as fierce new talent on the thriller scene and time and time again he’s been back at the top of the charts shredding the nerves of his readers with compulsive page-turning mysteries. Fans have enjoyed no less than fourteen Parker novels, charting the travails of the former NYPD cop turned private investigator across some of fiction’s darkest crime scenes. The latest is A Time of Torment in which ungodly fears haunt a strange and isolated community and Parker must face down the men who rule by terror, intimidation, and murder. It’s terrific. As are his short stories, the latest installment of which Night Music, will out just in time for this event!

Author of  Connolly’s other great claim to fame was his sensational fantasy novel,  The Book of Lost Things –which was, as the Irish Times observed “peculiar and perverse and humane, with an incredibly lyrical finale.” We are delighted that John Connolly is joining us to celebrate the publication of the beautiful 10th Anniversary edition of The Book of Lost Things, which includes two new stories and gorgeous illustrations.

Connolly’s a great speaker as well as a widely-respected author – Come along to meet him and hear more about his writing at an event that will be great for diehard fans and newcomers alike!
