The Turtle Boy – Kealan Patrick Burke. ★★★★

Blurb; School is out and summer has begun. For eleven year old Timmy Quinn and his best friend Pete Marshall, the dreary town of Delaware Ohio becomes a place of magic, hidden treasure and discovery. But on the day they encounter a strange young boy sitting on the bank of Myers Pond a pond playground rumor says may hide turtles the size of Buicks everything changes. For it soon becomes apparent that dark secrets abound in the little community, secrets which come cupped in the hands of the dead, and in a heartbeat, Timmy and Petes summer of wonder becomes a season of terror, betrayal and murder.

My Review; This is more of a longer read at 120 pages. It is book one in the Timmy Quinn series and I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for this series. Another spooky, creepy and twisted read! All around a pond in a town. What really happened at that pond? Why is it dangerous? What do stories of old say? Beware…

I was hooked and again devoured this in one sitting. The ending blew my mind. The whole outcome to this story was so unexpected I would have never guessed it. Jaw dropping. Brilliant read.

Highly recommend. I cannot wait to read more by this author now, I am very impressed by him. All his stories have been brilliantly written and very creepy stories. Another well deserved four stars.
