And he proved them right. Taking to sea, Jamie sought out danger and adventure in exotic ports all over the world as a smuggler, gunrunner-and murderer. Tough enough to handle anything, he's survived foreign prisons, pirates, and a shark attack.

As this fast-paced and ever-twisting narrative begins, Jamie has survived foreign prisons, pirates, and a shark attack. He now finds himself hospitalized for depression in a quiet community in Delaware called Hawkes Harborbut what he discovers in this small port city will be enough to drive him insane. Coming face to face with ultimate evil, Jamie's life will be changed forever.
 
Hawkes Harbor, the first new novel by Hinton in over fifteen years, marks the return of a major American author.
"I gave myself to [this novel] from the very first page. I loved the mystery of it, unfolding so deliberately. And then such horror!"R. L. Stine
 
"Hawkes Harbor is a ride so wild it all but lifts off the pages."Ellen Kanner, Pages Magazine
 
"In this fast-moving, well-paced, mesmerizing tale, Hinton has created an unforgettable and haunting group of outsiders."Bill Mollineau, ALAN Past-President, National Council Teachers of English
 
"Well-paced, dramatic writing [that is] enhanced by a circuitous plot-line and carefully crafted characters. Readers will race through the pages trying to figure out how Jamie can ever overcome his psychological demons and the physical threats that hold him captive."Susan Riley, Director, Mount Kisco Public Library, Mount Kisco, New York
 
"Erasing age and genre barriers, prize-winning, bestselling YA author Hinton turns out a dark, funny, scary, suspenseful tale that will entertain mainstream and adventure/horror readers alike. Jamie Sommers is orphaned at the age of eight in 1950 and sent to live with some nasty nuns until graduating as a troubled young man to a life at sea. After surviving a number of life-threatening adventures in exotic ports, he ends up in the small town of Hawkes Harbor on the Delaware coast, where he stumbles into a situation so dire his entire life is changed in a manner of minutes. His new employer, the mysterious Grenville Hawke, lord of Hawkes Hall, known to Jamie as It, the Thing, and the Vampire, almost kills Jamie, then goes on to enslave him for years to come. Moving back and forth through time, Hinton twists and shapes her bleak material until the story and the reader's expectations have been turned upside down . . . The basic elements that made [Hinton's] The Outsiders a longtime best-seller are present in this rousing read . . . A contemporary Treasure Island with a genre-bending twist . . . [Will appeal to today's] grown-up Hinton fans; older YA readers will enjoy the novel, too."Publishers Weekly
