John Connolly presents 'A BOOK OF BONES"
John Connolly is one of the most charming and delighful speakers we have ever had at Jabberwocky. We are so pleased he is returning Oct 25th with A Book of Bones, his 17th Charlie Parker mystery, which goes on sale Oct 15th. With his signature blend of crime and supernatural horror, A Book of Bones is a terrifying and suspenseful thrill ride that will keep you guessing until the very last page.
Currently Connolly's paperback of A Woman in the Woods is on every bestseller list imaginable. Besides the Charlie Parker series of mystery novels, he is also the author of the supernatural collection Nocturnes, the Samuel Johnson Trilogy for younger readers, and (with Jennifer Ridyard) the Chronicles of the Invaders series, and with James Patterson & Tim Malloy the nonfiction Filthy Rich: The Shocking True Story of Jeffrey Epstein - The Billionaire's Sex Scandal. He divides his time between Dublin and Portland, Maine; makes regular donations to the wine industry; and keeps a number of dogs in a remarkable degree of comfort.
Kirkus Reviews says of A Book of Bones: ""A seamless, expansive, and chilling blend of police procedural and gothic horror tale . . . perfect for fireside reading on cold, rainy nights.".
And of A Woman in the Woods, Kirkus Reviews says "A complicated plot, richly drawn characters, and a vein of horrors will keep readers devouring the pages" and RT Book Reviews says: "This haunting thriller will keep you reading into the night with the lights on and the phone turned off."
