The Burn Palaceby Stephen Dobyns
Synopses & Reviews
"One of the best of the best...You can't ask for more than this book gives. I loved it." Stephen King
An exquisitely unexpected, delightfully believable exploration of what normal looks like when it goes through the (evil) looking glass.” —Oprah.com
The sleepy community of Brewster, Rhode Island, is just like any other small American town. Its a place where most of its inhabitants will die blocks from where they were born; where gossip spreads like wildfire, and the big weekend entertainment is the inevitable fight at the local bar. But recently, something out of the ordinary—perhaps even supernatural—has been stirring. While packs of coyotes gather and a baby is stolen and replaced with a snake, a series of inexplicably violent acts confounds Detective Woody Potter—and inspires terror in the locals.
A Richard Russo small-town tableau crossed with a Stephen King thriller, The Burn Palace is a darkly funny, twisted portrait of chaos and paranoia that keeps readers guessing until the final pages.
