Though he was already a New York Times best-seller and a consecutive Edgar Award winner, North Carolina-born mystery author John Hart recently got a rather impressive boost when he shared a bill at Meymandi Concert Hall with none other than one-man-thriller-industry John Grisham. Whether you missed that or especially enjoyed it, here's a chance to get acquainted with Hart in a much more intimate setting, when he discusses his latest novel, The Hush, at Flyleaf Books. Set in the same fictional but all-too-real Raven County—a composite of places in rural North Carolina—as prior novel The Last Child, The Hush continues to unfold the tale of Johnny Merrimon, whose investigation of his sister's disappearance overturned his life and his hometown in the last book, and who is now dealing with his notoriety. It's a novel of exile and friendship set in places that, while invented, North Carolinians of all stripes would clearly and immediately recognize as their own.
