Overview

It's been almost seven years since the events of Myers Pond. Seven years since a child rose from the dead, seeking Timmy Quinn's help in finding a murderer, a search that left more questions than answers in its terrifying wake. But for Timmy, the dead never leave. They're everywhere, reaching out to him, and there is nowhere to hide from their quiet desperation.

Following a nightmarish encounter at home, Timmy's search for peace takes him to his grieving grandmother, and a small harbor town on the South coast of Ireland.

But no peace can exist in a place whose past is colored by hate, betrayal and murder, and it is not long before Timmy realizes his haven has become a cage.

And in the very foundations of an old crumbling factory, the dead are gathering.

Uniting.

To save his life and the lives of those he loves, Timmy Quinn must step behind the Curtain, into the realm of the dead and face something far more terrifying than he has ever encountered before-- a monstrous entity known only as The Hides...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Burke (Turtle Boy) offers a new twist on the by now familiar "I see dead people" subgenre in this fast-paced horror novella. Ohio teenager Timmy Quinn has the mysterious ability to see murder victims and to share these visions with the murderers. Quinn does not seek to run from his burden, but when his parents divorce, he agrees to his father's request to join him in their ancestral Ireland community, a small seafaring town. Sure enough, gory ghosts appear, leading him to wonder who was responsible for their murders. The climactic battle with an otherworldly embodiment of pain and suffering in an ancient tanning factory jars a bit, as it seems more like a scene from a 1950s film like The Blob than part of a ghost story. Still, Burke is a newcomer worth watching. (June) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    recommended-good story

    Overall, I liked this book, there were just moments of confusion, it's not an easy read and you do have to pay close attention. It did make me go for the third book....

    Exciting from start to finish!

    After reading The Turtle Boy (#1) in one day, I had to know what happened next. Never thought I'd read a horror story but couldn't put this one down. I'll be starting on The Vessels today. Thanks Mr. Burke.

    Great ghost story

    Seventeen years old Ohio teenager Timmy Quinn has the uncanny ability to help homicide victims obtain a modicum of revenge by sharing his gift with the murderers. Over the objections of his mother sick of the visits from the curious, the desperate, and the crazies, he agrees to help his neighbor Mr. Knox with his burden, but explains that it is up to the spirit whether to communicate with Quinn some have moved on while others just do not want to be seen by any living being. However, the case shakes him at a time when he is vulnerable with his parents splitting.----- His father asks Quinn to come to their ancestral home in Dungarvan, Ireland to especially meet his grieving paternal grandmother. Though reluctant to leave his mom behind, Quinn thinks this is the right thing to do so he travels across the Atlantic. However, instead of solace in the sea town, he finds the ghosts there much more gruesome looking than back in the States. He wonders why and who the brutal killer could be. He begins to investigate not understanding that he places himself in danger of being the next victim.------ Though the ending defies the Burke Law of paranormal-physics (as established throughout by the encounters) THE HIDES is a fantastic ghost story that grips readers from the moment a desperate Knox asks Timmy for his help and continues at a fast pace when the teen takes his skills to Ireland. The action-packed story line works because Timmy and his supernatural talent seem genuine so that the audience believes in ghosts and other apparitions. Horror fans will take immense ¿gruesome¿ delight reading Kealan Patrick Burke¿s solid chiller.----- Harriet Klausner
