Free Library of Philadelphia - Tom Rob Smith - The Farm - Michael Koryta - Those Who Wish Me Dead
Joseph Fox Bookshop, Thursday, June 5 at 7:30pm
The Farm Tom Rob Smith Tom Rob Smith’s propulsive debut thriller Child 44, a “densely, ingeniously plotted” (New York Times) portrait of Russia's secret police and the lengths they would go to protect their country’s crime-free image was an instant bestseller. The book was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize and adapted for a film starring Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace to be released in October 2014. The Secret Speech and Agent 6 completed Smith’s New York Times bestselling trilogy of Soviet thrillers. His new book The Farm examines family tensions, trust, and betrayal as a retired couple’s attempt to create a bucolic idyll in Sweden goes very wrong. Those Who Wish Me Dead Michael Koryta Former private investigator Michael Koryta is the New York Times bestselling author of nine novels, including The Ridge, The Cypress House, and So Cold the River—all New York Times notable books—and Envy the Night, winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. In Those Who Wish Me Dead, 13-year-old Jace Wilson witnesses a vicious murder, and is issued a false identity and hidden in a wilderness skills program for troubled teens until police can find the two killers. The nightmare unfolds in the desolate Montana mountains as the killers slaughter anyone in their path in a methodical quest to reach him.
