We are delighted to welcome Hannah Kent to Waterstones West End to celebrate the release of her second novel - The Good People. Following the success of her debut - Burial Rites - The Good People is fresh for 2017 and already gaining momentum. Set in nineteenth-century Ireland and based on newspaper reports and a court case from the time. 'A literary novel with the pace and tension of a thriller, Hannah Kent takes us on a frightening journey towards an unspeakable tragedy. I am in awe of Kent's gifts as a storyteller.' – Paula Hawkins 'a thoroughly engrossing entrée into the macabre nature of a vanished society, its virtues and its folliws and its lethal impulses.' - Thomas Keneally
