An Evening with Edgar Award-Winning Mystery Author John Hart



Join us at Fiction Addiction on Thursday, May 12th, at 6:30pm for an evening with John Hart, the only mystery author to win back-to-back Edgar Awards for Best Mystery Novel, as he discusses his new book, Redemption Road (Thomas Dunne, hardcover, $27.99, on sale 5/3/16).


Tickets are $30 per person, and each ticket includes a copy of Redemption Road, which releases May 3rd. Tickets and books can be purchased online, at the store, or by calling Fiction Addiction at 864-675-0540.


John has been one of Jill and Nancy's favorite mystery authors since they read his debut novel, The King of Lies. And as the awards attest, he just gets better and better with each book. Here's what we think about Redemption Road:


"John Hart's work just gets more powerful with each book he writes! Redemption Road is more than just a thriller; it's an intense confrontation between good (the book's heroine, police officer Elizabeth Black) and the forces of evil (corruption, betrayal, greed, violence, and insanity) arrayed against Elizabeth and the children she'd give her life to protect." -Jill


"John Hart's newest novel, Redemption Road, is a thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout, but it is also obvious that the author has poured all of his heart and soul into this beautifully written story of sadness, despair, love, and hope." -Nancy


It took John five years to write Redemption Road and there is quite a story behind the story, so don't miss this rare opportunity to meet the author who wins rave reviews from both readers and other mystery authors.


Here's a small sampling of praise: David Baldacci says, "John Hart can flat-out write;" Harlan Coben says, "John Hart is a master storyteller;" and Vince Flynn said, "John Hart has clearly joined the top rank of thriller writers."


Since his debut bestseller, The King of Lies, reviwers across the country have heaped praise on John Hart, comparing his writing to that of Pat Conroy, Cormac McCarthy, and Scott Turow. Each novel has taken Hart higher on the New York Times bestseller list as his masterful writing and assured evocation of place have won readers around the world and earned history's only consecutive Edgar Awards for Best Novel with Down River and The Last Child.


Now, Hart delivers his most powerful story yet.




A boy with a gun waits for the man who killed his mother.


A troubled detective confronts her past in the aftermath of a brutal shooting.


After thirteen years in prison, a good cop walks free as deep in the forest, on the altar of an abandoned church, a body cools in pale linen...


This is a town on the brink.


This is Redemption Road.


Brimming with tension, secrets, and betrayal, Redemption Road proves again that John Hart is a master of the literary thriller.
