John Connolly: The Wolf in Winter Thursday May 22nd 6pm Town Hall
Irish writer John Connolly launched the dark Charlie Parker thriller series with the gruesome Every Dead Thing. Former NYPD detective Parker is driven by revenge and guilt after the shocking murders of his wife and daughter. Winner of numerous awards, John writes crime novels which are unsettling, fast paced and, best of all, which keep you turning the page. The twelfth novel in the Charlie Parker series is The Wolf in Winter, where Parker himself is marked to die.
