9780375719240: Angel Rock: A Novel

After a week lost in the Australian outback, thirteen-year-old Tom Ferry makes his way back to Angel Rock. To the horror of everyone in the small town, he is alone. Exhausted and traumatized, he can't remember what happened to Flynn, his little brother. Shortly thereafter, another child of Angel Rock is found dead in Sydney, the apparent victim of suicide. But it is only with the arrival of Gibson, the investigating detective from Sydney, that the intertwining questions surrounding the fate of the two children, the silence of the townsfolk, and the mysteries of the land itself begin to unravel.

Angel Rock marks the American debut of the award-winning writer Darren Williams. By interlacing suspense with brilliantly rendered characters and evocative descriptions of the peculiar town they inhabit, he has created a novel that is immediately gripping and consistently suprising. It is a book that will be read long into the night.

From the Back Cover:

“Beautiful. . . . Haunting. . . . Compelling.” —Denver Post

“A darkly atmospheric, haunting novel. . . . Like Daphne Du Maurier . . . Williams knows the meaning of menace.” —The Baltimore Sun

“Creates a mood of thoughtful suspense that keeps the reader curious from the start.” —The Washington Post Book World

"Although leavened here and there with Huckleberry Finn moments of early love, this is in the main a compelling page-turner where powerful, poetic writing creates a pressing sense of menace. To be read strictly with the curtains closed." —Daily Mail (London)

“Opens with a gorgeous evocation of summer . . . .The prose carries a graceful weight of detail.” –New York Times

“A compelling page-turner where powerful, poetic writing creates a pressing sense of menace.” –CNN

“One of this year's finest works of prose. . . . An absorbing, accomplished novel about adolescence and adulthood, innocence and experience, and living with--and letting go of--the past. . . . [Has] a heartbreaking and inspiring transcendence.” –Baltimore City Paper

“Addictive. . . . Part psychological thriller, part murder mystery, part critique of dealing with loss.” –Austin American Statesman

“The mystery of the story is what keeps the pages turning, but the strength of the characters is what holds the reader’s attention.” –Bookpage
