Broken River

Broken River Could Be J. Robert Lennon’s Breakout Novel

Each time J. Robert Lennon drops a new book I think, this is the one, this is the time the “general public” will discover J. Robert Lennon.

Entertainment Weekly will give it an “A+,” Angelina Jolie will tweet about it, or some such thing. Famed writer of thrillers Lee Child calls Mr. Lennon’s latest novel, Broken River, “compelling from the first page, and then smart, sophisticated, suspenseful and satisfying throughout — [it] is a first-class ride.” It has also been chosen as the May 2017 Indie Next #1 Pick, so who knows, perhaps Broken River, his eighth novel, will be that breakout book.

An Evening with J. Robert Lennon

J. Robert Lennon has always been at home with the strange and the scary, but Broken River truly raises the bar. On Thursday, May 18 from 7-8:30 PM, Lennon will talk about his new book which begins with a young girl’s narrow escape from a brutal crime scene near her home.

The novel picks up the thread years later to follow the family who moves into this same house with a few problems of their own. Told by a gradually awakening consciousness called The Observer, Lennon filters the purely entertaining pleasures of a psychological thriller through his singular imagination.
