Publisher's Summary

Set in the same dark world as his beloved novel The Last Child, John Hart delivers a stunning vision of a secret world - rarely seen - in this unforgettable audiobook.

It's been 10 years since the events that changed Johnny Merrimon's life and rocked his hometown to the core. Since then, Johnny has fought to maintain his privacy, but books have been written of his exploits; he has fans, groupies. Living alone in the wilderness beyond town, Johnny's only connection to normal life is his old friend, Jack. They're not boys anymore, but the bonds remain. What they shared. What they lost.

But Jack sees danger in the wild places Johnny calls home; he senses darkness and hunger, an intractable intent. Johnny will discuss none of it, but there are the things he knows, the things he can do. A lesser friend might accept such abilities as a gift, but Jack has felt what moves in the swamp: the cold of it, the unspeakable fear.

Building on the world first glimpsed in The Last Child, The Hush is more than an exploration of friendship, persistence, and forgotten power. It takes the listener to unexpected places and reminds us all why John Hart, after five consecutive New York Times best sellers, still warrants acclaim.

Critic Reviews

"The story is greatly enhanced by narrator Jeremy Bobb. No character is too small for Bobb's vocal attention.... A great example of a riveting story enhanced by a creative, consistent narration." (AudioFile Magazine)

Hmm...Good and Bad

I enjoyed many parts of this book but then it spiraled from mystery into very much a fantasy. The Last Child was much better and skimmed the lines of fantasy just enough...This relied on fantasy for much of the plot. If it had been introduced into the story with restraint this would have been a much better book...Towards the end it got ridiculous and then I just couldn't wait for the ending. I do like the two main characters its a shame that this story went off the rails. The narrator was good.

WOW!! Let's discuss thin novel!

First to Audible: Law partner Lesley seduces new associate Jack and based on little else you assign The Hush the genre Legal Thriller? The correct genre is Fantasy: Paranormal and Mystical.

Next: This is the first novel by John Hart I have been able to complete, but only because I considered it a personal challenge.

Finally: The Hush is by far the worst novel I have ever completed.

Best book yet!

I did not think John Hart could top his prior works but he has done it. This story never stops and is rich with character and plot surprises. Absolutely loved it! Waiting patiently for the next book by Mr Hart.....

Love this author

I fell in love with the characters from this book in his previous book, and was not disappointed. The author has a way of describing things that almost feels artistic. Great story, will definitely check out more of his.

Not my cup of tea!

I’ve enjoyed John Hart’s books before this, including The Last Child. This is probably as well written, but it definitely is not my cup of tea!!! I forced myself to finish it. I wish the synopsis had included not only the beginning and the end but at least a hint of all the story in between; I doubt I would have listened to it.

What happened?

This continuation of the wonderful The Last Child really was a shock to this reader. It’s as though John Hart received an advance and sat down and wrote this in a couple hours. I was very disappointed.

Compelling, cinematic story.

The story is great, the narrator makes it greater. Jeremy Bobb adds gravitas and credibility to an incredible story. Loved it. Now what...
