Publisher's Summary

A stunning high-concept thriller from the best-selling author of Good Samaritans and Nothing Important Happened Today.  

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 100 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.

One hell of a ride

Narration is spot on as usual and although a very long book, I really did enjoy it. Perhaps 'enjoy' is not always applicable with our author as the themes to his books seem even darker than Hebert or King, being more sexual and gruesome in content - but I tolerate the former and do admit to 'enjoying' the latter (wonder what that says about me?) This is the complicated story of a small town visited by evil over the period of 7 days. Does the evil arrive with our tortured detective who has returned to his birthplace after his exploits in Good Samaritan (I really enjoyed that novel too). Evil is voiced by the narrator who conveys a sense of menace throughout the novel - and does it so very well. There are many deaths, strange happenings, dark thoughts and sometimes, even humour but this is not a comfortable read. Mr Carver has a very warped view of mankind but such evil does exist in our society although most of us will never see (or even think) it. Suspension of belief will be required but if you can do that, then this book may well suit you as it did me.
