Please Note: This event has been cancelled. We hope to reschedule it for later this summer.
John Katzenbach, author of the psychological thriller What Comes Next, will visit Phoenix Books Burlington to discuss and read from his new novel.
John Katzenbach is the New York Times bestselling author of nine previous novels: the Edgar Award-nominated In the Heat of the Summer, which was adapted for the screen as The Mean Season; The Traveler; Day of Reckoning; Just Cause, which was also made into a movie; The Shadow Man (another Edgar nominee); State of Mind; Hart's War, which was also a major motion picture; The Analyst; and The Madman's Tale. Katzenbach has been a criminal court reporter for The Miami Herald and Miami News and a featured writer for the Herald's Tropic magazine. He lives in western Massachusetts.
About What Comes Next: When a retired academician witnesses a lovely young woman snatched off
the street, he is unsatisfied by the police response and vows to find
her on his own. She has been kidnapped and held prisoner by a married
couple who have started an exclusive website, named "What Comes Next,"
on which viewers can watch, in real time, what befalls their victims.
What befalls the pretty teenager at the hands of the depraved couple, as thousands follow every moment of her nightmare, provides one of the most terrifying novels of the year.
Praise for John Katzenbach:
"Few writers of crime fiction seem to understand the criminal mind as well as Katzenbach." --People
"What is so scary is that Katzenbach creates a fictional world that is very much like the one we live in now, only taken to a horrifying extreme." --USA Today
"Katzenbach is very good at world-building, and his imaginary Western Territory is frighteningly believable." --The Washington Post
"Katzenbach weaves a complex and intriguing mystery while at the same time illuminating a piece of history. I found myself caught in its grip within the first few pages." - Jonathan Harr, author of A Civil Action
"Katzenbach's wonderful, tense narrative flows effortlessly, drawing you deeper and deeper into a chilling atmosphere of evil, darkness, and shadows." --The Miami Herald
