John Hart’s prowess as a master of the literary thriller is unquestionable as he’s dominated the bestseller lists. With the paperback of his hit Redemption Road out now—a book brimming with tension, secrets, and betrayal—and his forthcoming novel, The Hush, coming in February 2018, he’s set to continue that streak. Set in the world of The Last Child, The Hush is a powerful exploration of friendship and forgotten power that takes us to unexpected and unplumbed depths.
John spoke with us recently about the author whose work taught him the power of thoughtful attention to language, the book that never fails to delight him, and his favorite indie bookstores across the country. (Hint: having a wine bar attached helps!)
