School is out and summer has begun. For eleven year old Timmy Quinn and his best friend Pete Marshall, the dreary town of Delaware Ohio becomes a place of magic, hidden treasure and discovery.
But on the day they encounter a strange young boy sitting on the bank of Myers Pond a pond playground rumor says may hide turtles the size of Buicks everything changes.
For it soon becomes apparent that dark secrets abound in the little community, secrets which come cupped in the hands of the dead, and in a heartbeat, Timmy and Pete's summer of wonder becomes a season of terror, betrayal and murder.
I loved The Turtle Boy. It's a fantastic mix of youth, magic, and horror.
The Turtle Boy is first novella in Kealan Patrick Burke's Timmy Quinn series. I'm really looking forward to reading The Hides and the rest of the series.
If you haven't read The Turtle Boy yet, you can download it free from Smashwords. Kealan says it's only for a "limited time" so don't be crazy and wait. You will love this one.
