Best-selling YA author Maureen Johnson will appear at the Bethesda Library (7400 Arlington Road) this Thursday, February 28, at 5:00 PM.
She will be discussing her newest novel, The Madness Underneath, which will be released tomorrow.
Madness is the second in Johnson's 4-book Shades of London series. Heroine Rory Devereaux returns after tangling with a Jack-the-Ripper copycat in Book 1.
Now she is in therapy (understandably), but the ghost-hunting secret police known as the Shades won't let Rory's newfound ghost-killing powers go to waste on her shrink's couch.
Back to London it is, and this time there are a whole bunch of paranormal problems. Expect surprises, witty dialogue and "spectacularly gruesome details" from the creative author behind Book 1, In the Name of the Star, which you have all of tonight to read before Book 2 hits shelves tomorrow.
