PRAISE FOR COPPERHEAD ROAD
Not since Stephen King's "It" can I remember a book
that so well captured the potential terror faced by
teenagers about to enter the real world.
ABOUT THE BOOK
As summer dies, the first boy is found in a shallow grave. More will follow. His hometown has a serial child killer in its midst….
At seventeen, John Ray has silently survived years of molestation at the hands of a respected coach and mentor. When younger boys start disappearing, found sexually abused and murdered in the same woods where he was once victimized, John must confront not only his own past but an interwoven set of characters, some evil, some desperate and some both, who share his memories in one way or another.
What John must do, who he must open up to, and the corpses he must unearth-- literally and figuratively in order to stop the madness around him-- is what drives this intense story to its heart-pounding conclusion.
In addition to its pace and rich character development, Copperhead Road features an eerie and remarkable sense of place; its setting is the Northern Virginia suburbs of the mid-1980s, pre-cell phone, and pre-Internet, and will carry any reader back to a simpler but sometimes darker recent past.
