Can’t-Wait Wednesday hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings is a weekly
post to spotlight books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.
This week the book I’m waiting on and excited to read is …
No one ever talks about what happens in Little Compton…
When David left home three years ago, he never looked back. Now, the only connection to his tiny New England hometown is his grandmother Maggie, whose mind is unraveling as she slowly succumbs to dementia. But when her best friend turns up dead and she may be the sole witness to the crime, David has no choice but to return to a place that never accepted his trans-identity and only ever wanted him gone.
Maggie’s testimony is shrouded in doubt–in between moments of lucidity she talks about things that never happened, about apparitions, disappearances, and murders. But are they really only stories? After a man’s death sets off a hauntingly familiar chain of events, it seems there’s some truth to Maggie’s words.
With a body count on the rise, David begrudgingly plugs back into the tight-knit community to seek out the truth. And while David returns home a changed man, he finds that the ghosts of his past have waited for him. He’ll have to face them head-on before he can begin to unravel his grandmother’s story and finally put to rest the mysteries of this little town, lost in the fog.
What do you think? It sounds so good, doesn’t it!
Have you had a chance to read Dark Currents or any other books by Doug Burgess?
