Well – what a story!!!
It’s a small story. A small town with small lives that you would never have heard about if none of this had happened.
Hinton Hollow. Population 5,120.
Little Henry Wallace was eight years old and one hundred miles from home before anyone talked to him. His mother placed him on a train with a label around his neck, asking for him to be kept safe for a week, kept away from Hinton Hollow.
Because something was coming.
Narrated by Evil itself, Hinton Hollow Death Trip recounts five days in the history of this small rural town, when darkness paid a visit and infected its residents. A visit that made them act in unnatural ways. Prodding at their insecurities. Nudging at their secrets and desires. Coaxing out the malevolence suppressed within them. Showing their true selves.
Making them cheat.
Making them steal.
Making them kill.
Detective Sergeant Pace had returned to his childhood home. To escape the things he had done in the city. To go back to something simple. But he was not alone. Evil had a plan.
Unbeknownst to me, this is actually the third book in the series. When I agreed to to the review, I got so excited by the synopsis that I didn’t pay attention to that fact. As it happens, you can read it and enjoy it as a stand alone, but don’t be me… read the other two first!! (They’re now on my kindle ready and waiting!)
Hinton Hollow is a “small story about a small town” but oh my goodness, this story ain’t small. This story is filled with SO MUCH! It’s creepy as hell, it’s slightly confusing and it’s BRILLIANT.
I flew through this book and I can’t wait to read his others. It’s so well written, fast paced, and it really pulls you in to the storyline – it pulls you into the town.
There are so many different characters and personalities to work with and they truly make the story what it is. Evil is out to cause trouble and he does so much worse than you can imagine. (Side note: where do these authors come up with such fabulously creepy storylines??)
If you love crime thrillers and being creeped out by a book, then this is definitely one for you. It’s incredible. I highly recommend it.
Thank you so much to Anne Cater of Random Things blog tours for arranging this and sending me the e-book in exchange for an honest review.
This is definitely the kind of book you won’t forget in a hurry. Just make sure you don’t read it right before bed if you’re prone to nightmares. Haha 😂
