New Canaan Library is hosting two new authors in the thriller genre, Kate Brody and Joanna Margaret,  in conversation about Brody’s new crime novel, The Rabbit Hole.

Described as a “twisty debut,” Rabbit Hole explores the dark side of true crime fandom and the blurry lines of female friendship, and guarantees a nail biting, edge-of-seat reading experience.

More About The Rabbit Hole

Rabbit Hole by Kate Brody book coverFrom Kate Brody’s website:

Ten years ago, Teddy Angstrom’s older sister, Angie, disappeared. Now Teddy’s father, Mark, has killed himself. Unbeknownst to his family, Mark had been active in a Reddit community fixated on Angie, and Teddy can’t help but fall down the same rabbit hole.

Her investigation quickly gets her in hot water with her teacher colleagues, her gun-nut boyfriend, and her long-lost half-brother. Further complicating matters is Mickey, a charming amateur sleuth keen on helping her solve the case.

As Teddy struggles to reconcile new information with old memories, she loses her grip on reality, but she won’t stop until she finds out what happened to Angie—or destroys herself in the process.

Rabbit Hole is a heart-wrenching character study of a mind twisted by grief and page-turning mystery that’s as addictive as a late-night Reddit binge.
