An orphan and a bastard, Jamie grew up tough enough to handle almost anything. Taking to the sea, he found danger and adventure in exotic ports all over the world. He survived foreign prisons, smugglers, pirates, gunrunners, and shark attacks. But what he discovers in the quiet seaside town of Hawkes Harbor, Delaware, is enough to drive him almost insane - and change his life forever. "Hawkes Harbor" is a compelling and unpredictable novel by one of America's most honored storytellers.

Review quote

"Vampires, pirates, and lusty French socialites: now, that's a recipe for a good time. Hinton has written an adult novel that can awaken the rough-and tumble child in anyone. Hinton's ability to engage hasn't faded." - The New York Times "A dark, funny, scary, suspenseful tale that will entertain mainstream and adventure/horror readers alike. The basic elements that made her book The Outsiders a long-time bestseller are present in this rousing read. This is a contemporary Treasure Island with a genrebending twist." - Publishers Weekly"
