The Mark Twain House & Museum is delighted to welcome back three New York Times bestselling authors we have been honored to present before: the legendary duo of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child in conversation with Christopher Rice to discuss Preston & Child’s latest thrilling chiller Bloodless.

In this latest installment of the #1 NYT bestselling series, FBI Agent Pendergast faces the strangest, most challenging puzzle of his career, when bodies—drained to the last drop of blood—begin appearing in Savannah, GA.

On the evening of November 24, 1971, D. B. Cooper hijacked Flight 305—Portland to Seattle—with a fake bomb, collected a ransom of $200,000, and then parachuted from the rear of the plane, disappearing into the night…and into history. Fifty years later, Agent Pendergast takes on a bizarre and gruesome case: in the ghost-haunted city of Savannah, Georgia, bodies are found with no blood left in their veins—sowing panic and reviving whispered tales of the infamous Savannah Vampire.

As the mystery rises along with the body count, Pendergast and his partner, Agent Coldmoon, race to understand how—or if—these murders are connected to the only unsolved skyjacking in American history. Together, they uncover not just the answer…but an unearthly evil beyond all imagining.
