About the Book: From New York Times bestselling author William Martin comes a WWII thriller as intense as The Day of the Jackal and as gripping as The Eye of the Needle. In December ’41, Martin takes us on the ultimate manhunt, a desperate chase from Los Angeles to Washington, D. C., in the first weeks of the Second World War. Booklist says of December ’41: “Martin concocts a devilishly complex and lusciously detail-rich thriller. . . Echoing Ken Follett’s classic Eye of the Needle, Martin builds tension superbly while surrounding the assassin and his pursuer with a rich panoply of supporting players and backstories.”

William Martin is the New York Times best-selling author of over a dozen novels, an award-winning PBS documentary on the life of George Washington, and a cult-classic horror film, too. In novels like Back Bay, City of Dreams, The Lost Constitution, The Lincoln Letter, and Bound for Gold, he has told stories of the great and the anonymous of American history, and he’s taken readers from the deck of the Mayflower to 9/11. His work has earned him many accolades and honors, including the 2005 New England Book Award, the 2015 Samuel Eliot Morison Award, and the 2019 Robert B. Parker Award. He and his wife live near Boston, where he serves on several cultural and historical institutions’ boards, and he has three grown children.

Books will be available for sale before and during the event from our bookstore partner Haley Booksellers.
