The Connolly & Billingham Double Act Hits London - Thursday!

Two remarkable thriller writers who write very dark, thought provoking crime-fiction; but who also happen to be two of the funniest scribes in the genre have a surprise London visit this Thursday.

I have followed John Connolly’s work for many years, and have been especially excited about his latest 'THE GATES', which he recently discussed at The Rap Sheet. While Mark Billingham’s London based Tom Thorne series is required reading for enthusiasts. His latest 'Bloodline' is exceptional. Last year at Bouchercon Baltimore, one of the funniest panels was the Connolly & Bilingham in conversation [pictured], where they revealed an amusing insight into the workings of a crime fiction writer. The conversation was webcast live and is archived at The Rap Sheet - Here

So if you’re in London and free Thursday evening, why not meet John Connolly and Mark Billingham who will be doing an event at Waterstone’s, Piccadilly, at 7.00pm on Thursday 1 October. John will be introducing his wonderful new novel THE GATES, talking about THE LOVERS and looking forward to THE WHISPERERS, and Mark will be talking about BLOOD LINE.
After the event there will be plenty of time to get your books signed and don’t forget to tell them that Shots sent you!
