Publisher's Summary

Dr. Phillip McDevitt, director of Terrace View Asylum, is intrigued by his newest patient, a troubled young man recently transferred from the state hospital for the criminally insane. Jamie Sommers suffers from depression, partial amnesia, and an unaccountable fear of the dark. Dr. McDevitt is determined to help Jamie conquer his demons, but the more he probes the young man's fractured memories, the stranger his case becomes....

An orphan and a bastard, Jamie grew up tough enough to handle almost anything. Taking to the sea, he found danger and adventure in exotic ports all over the world. He's survived foreign prisons, smugglers, pirates, gunrunners, and even a shark attack. But what he discovered in the quiet seaside town of Hawkes Harbor, Delaware, was enough to drive him almost insane - and change his life forever.

Hawkes Harbor is a compelling and unpredictable new novel by one of America's most honored storytellers.

    Story
    "Dark Shadows with a different name"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is one of THE best books I have ever read. Apparently it was intended as Dark Shadows fiction, and believe me, even with different names, it is. If you love Willie Loomis as much as I do, READ THIS BOOK. If you love his seafaring companion Jason McGuire, READ THIS BOOK. A wonderfully-told, beautifully performed story that stands alone but, when considered as part of the Dark Shadows canon, fills in some gaps in what is an astonishing life. This book resonated with me for months after I finished it - so much so that I had to read it again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hawkes Harbor?

    Without spoiling it for others, the scene on the road after Christmas tore my heart out.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    He is so able to convey emotion with his voice and can 'read' different parts in character. Beautifully done.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I sobbed my heart out at the end - for Grenville (Barnabas) and for Jamie (Willie.)


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there were more books like this - perhaps Hinton could be persuaded to write another, from a different character's point of view?

    "Sailor be-ware!!!!!"

    I haven't finished reading yet but I am so confused half-way through this book. Is it horror or a sailor's tale of the high -seas...Maybe there is a suprise ending.
