I really liked this book, my first Douglass Clegg read. Nemo, Brooke, and Bruno Raglan are reunited at their childhood home of Hawthorne on Burnely Island after their father was brutally murdered in the smokehouse where they played The Dark Game when they were children. As they try to solve the mystery of their father's murder they discovery many hidden secrets at Hawthorne and many suppressed memories are revealed. I highly recommend this book, a chilling, supernatural thriller.
Quick reading,good plot and mystery.
Very good story. The kids of a murdered man come back home and try to unravel the mystery of how their father was killed.
When Nemo Raglan's father is murdered in one of the most vicious killings of recent years, Nemo must return to the New England island he thought he had escaped for good, Burnley Island . , . and the shadowy farmhouse called Hawthorn. But this murder was no crime of human ferocity. What butchered Nemo's father may in fact be something far more terrifying---something Nemo and his younger brother and sister have known since they were children.
