John Connolly will be giving insights about his work and signing copies of his new work, A Time of Torment, at the Eastcheap shop from 8pm on Thursday, April 14.

John is noted for the painstaking research he puts into his novels, with the latest taking him into the world of research into the background of his novels is superb – this time taking him into the world of folklore and myth.

Once again the central character is private detective Charlie Parker, called in to investigate the case of a fallen hero who fell from grace and was put behind bars.

Jerome Burnel, whose life was torn apart when he stepped in to prevent a mass slaying, insists he was set up – but can Parker root out the evidence that will prove his innocence?

Parker, who is the focus of a string of earlier adventures, is a flawed hero himself and only too ready to go into battle to redress injustice.

Dublin-born John has been on the bestseller lists since his debut novel Every Dead Thing hit the bookshops, and he’s the first Irish writer to be awarded the coveted Edgar by the Mystery Writers of America.
