Event Description

Join us for an evening with award-winning author John Connolly.

One of the most unique and compelling voices in crime fiction, the best-selling, award winning John Connolly will talk about his latest Charlie Parker thriller, The Instruments of Darkness.

A Child Missing. A Mother Accused. Charlie Parker Is Their Only Hope.
In Maine, Colleen Clark stands accused of the worst crime a mother can commit: the abduction and possible murder of her child. Everyone – ambitious politicians in an election season, hardened police, ordinary folk – has an opinion on the case, and most believe she is guilty.

With over 30 published works, including the popular Charlie Parker series, his books have captivated readers around the world. He has won the Edgar, Anthony, Shamus, and Macavity awards in the US, a CWA Dagger in the UK, and an Irish Book Award, as well as numerous international accolades, and has published more UK Sunday Times Top 10 Hardback Bestsellers than any other Irish writer.
