As we get closer to 2020 — winter snow is already on the ground here in Minnesota — it’s a good time to let you in on books coming your way in 2020. And I’ll be keeping you busy.
My new Minnesota stand-alone thriller THIEF RIVER FALLS arrives on February 1. It’s available for pre-order now in hardback, e-book, paperback, and audio. This intensely emotional thriller is one of my all-time favorites among my novels. It’s a gripping ride through the life of a writer in northwestern Minnesota whose world gets turned upside down in horrifying ways. “Smart, wickedly suspenseful and full of truly shocking twists, Thief River Falls is also a moving tale about family,” says Edgar Award-winning novelist Alison Gaylin.
But THIEF RIVER FALLS is just the beginning.
I’ve also been tapped by Putnam and the Robert Ludlum estate to carry on Ludlum’s Jason Bourne series — one of the great honors of my creative life — and I just turned in the completed Bourne novel last week. So you can look for Jason Bourne to return next summer in a book that is hugely fun and exciting. It was one of the most enjoyable projects I’ve ever worked on. More news on that book very soon!
Want more? Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about Jonathan Stride. He’ll be back in Duluth in an all-new “ripped from the headlines” thriller FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND due out from Blackstone next fall.
Oh, and as if all of that isn’t enough, my New York Times bestseller THE DEEP, DEEP SNOW (which was released this summer as an audiobook exclusive and has more than 10,000 reviews on Audible) will finally appear in e-book and paperback in 2020.
So get ready for an exciting year of reading!
Lots of library events coming up in the next week!
This Saturday, I’m at the library in Osceola WI at 1:00 pm.
On Sunday, I’m down in Waukee, IA at the Lutheran Church of Hope at 2:00 pm, where my intense and topical thriller MARATHON is this year’s selection for the Dallas County Reads program.
And next Thursday, I’ll be at the North Mankato Taylor library at 6:00 pm.
At all three events, I’ll share fun stories from the last 15 years in the publishing business! I’ll take all of your questions…and I’ll give sneak previews of my 2020 releases, including the stand-alone Minnesota thriller THIEF RIVER FALLS and the next novel in the Duluth-based Jonathan Stride series, FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND. Oh — and I’ll also talk about being chosen to take over Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne series, with my first Bourne novel THE BOURNE CONSPIRACY due out in the summer of 2020.
My books will be available for sale and signing (remember, the holidays aren’t far away!).
You didn’t think I’d forget about Stride, did you?
Just wrapped up the first draft of the new book. Coming to you in fall of 2020!
Wow. Just wow.
