About The Book
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 one hundred 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.
I am not sure if you ever read a book by Will Carver, just one advise, be prepared for a different story, were there are no rules or typical plots, expect the unexpected. Ready?
When I start reading one of the Orenda books I normally don’t know what’s the plot, I know that it will be different from the others, original and special, of course this one is not different, mainly because it’s told by the Evil himself…! No jokes, this is a little “adventure” of his life in Earth, not something big, only 5 days in his life and how he completely changed Hinton Hollow. And, as the Evil himself repeats quite often, he doesn’t kill or throw rocks, he only makes a little wave in the human’s thoughts, the actions resulting of it will depend only to them.
This is the third book of the series Detective Sergeant Pace, you can read it as standalone, yes, but this is not a typical series where there’s a case and the detective investigates it, so I would recommend you to start from the beginning, the books are “special” (if you are looking for a word to describe them) something that I am sure you’ve never read before. There are some characters that are part of the story in all of them, but the story is interesting per se, you don’t need to know their connections.
This is not an easy read, it will disturb you and make you re-think the actions and decisions you’ve taken in your life as you start reading, the Evil will let you go away and close the book, you’ll have plenty of time to do it, but once you get hooked to the story you’ll not be able to stop reading, because, who can say no to the Evil? Not me, of course!
