Dr. Phillip McDevitt, director of Terrace View Asylum, is intrigued by his newest patient, a troubled young man recently transferred from the state hospital for the criminally insane. Jamie Sommers suffers from depression, partial amnesia, and an unaccountable fear of the dark. Dr. McDevitt is determined to help Jamie conquer his demons, but the more he probes the young man’s fractured memories, the stranger his case becomes.…

An orphan and a bastard, Jamie grew up tough enough to handle almost anything. Taking to the sea, he found danger and adventure in exotic ports all over the world. He’s survived foreign prisons, smugglers, pirates, gunrunners, and even a shark attack. But what he discovered in the quiet seaside town of Hawkes Harbor, Delaware, was enough to drive him almost insane—and change his life forever.

Hawkes Harbor is a compelling and unpredictable new novel by one of America’s most honored storytellers.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 2/18/2014

    " I found the book moved along to slow. It was not a kind of book I would normally read, but it was not bad. I personnaly like more action in a vampire book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Devon | 2/10/2014

    " I love S.E. Hinton's novels. They're all terrific. This one's my least favorite (I always have preferred YA to Adult books) but it wasn't necessarily a bad book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 2/4/2014

    " Or, the author of The Outsiders and Rumble Fish adapts the old late 60's/early 70's vampire soap opera Dark Shadows into a novel. For some reason. I enjoyed this mostly as a fan of the soap, never having read any of Hinton's famed books. This installment focuses on the Willie Loomis character (here named Jamie) and his relationship with bloodsucker Barnabas (here named Grenville). I think someone must've ran into some copyright issues? Anyway, if Hinton ever writes more in the series, I'm on board, esp. if she brings the witch Angelique into the mix. She could call her...I dunno, Marguerite? Fun stuff, perfect for Dark Shadows acolytes needing a quick read for airline travel, etc. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill | 1/24/2014

    " The best Dark Shadows fan fic I've ever read! Finally some respect for Jason & Willie (uh, I mean "Jamie & Kellen"!) The ending made me cry and NOTHING usually makes me cry. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Suvi | 1/15/2014

    " Had a kind of young adult fiction feel to it, probably because the author is known for writing only that. Bland writing and strange plot (not in the good way). Disappointing in every level. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 1/1/2014

    " SE Hinton also wrote The Outsiders - and is a fantastic writer. This one is a little disturbing at times but keeps evolving in ways that are unexpected. A definite page turner. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jacque | 12/31/2013

    " This book was just really strange and all over the place. Totally different than what I expected, and not in a good way. I wouldn't bother with this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenni | 12/29/2013

    " A surprisingly hopeful and very inspiring book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 12/23/2013

    " Didn't like it as much as the ones I read in junior high... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele Cacano | 12/18/2013

    " I loved this adult novel, centering on a young man who lives the life of a juvenile delinquent, a South Seas Sailor beset by pirates, and eventually falls in league with a subtle stoic vampire. Amazing fiction. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Denise | 12/16/2013

    " This must have been really bad because I never leave notes to myself unless something was awful. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lourdes | 12/8/2013

    " The book was very disjointed. The timeline jumps around a lot and the story leaves you wondering about things, but not in a good way. Not a tough read so I did finish it but I am asking myself why I finished it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 9/11/2013

    " Not what I was expecting from S.E. Hinton, but I liked it still. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 8/29/2013

    " Wonderful tale about a vampire where for the entire book, he was not the focus. Hinton did an amazing job with this with a character you couldn't help but feel sorry for. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Savannah | 5/19/2013

    " Interesting and lovely book, but sometimes I didn't know quite what story I was reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica Cotton lafever | 5/8/2013

    " I found it very strange "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 3/16/2013

    " Interesting story. I kept reading and didn't want to put it down because of my curiosity of what would happen. But honestly I was left saying "WTF, really, that's it?" I feel this book had potential to be much more than it was "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia | 11/21/2012

    " I threw this book across the room. Not because I didn't like it... NO! FAR FROM IT! I just didn't want it to end! The ending was so perfect! One of the best books I've read since The Outsiders. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mina | 8/28/2012

    " I enjoyed the way it was written....bouncing back and forth between the "past" and the "present" of the main character. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Saundra | 8/11/2012

    " so disappointingly bad "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kari | 3/25/2012

    " Strange book coming from this author. It was about vampires which I thought totally took away from her genre, but she did pull it off. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 3/13/2012

    " Well, it's definitely the best barely-disguised Dark Shadows fanfiction written by a famous author of classic YA novels that I've ever read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Padmavathitx | 9/17/2011

    " I read it and I am confused? What in the hell was this book about? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kyleigh | 7/1/2011

    " The absolute BEST vampire novel I've ever read. This beats the crap out of Twilight. Much better for a more mature reader and an amazing story line. It skips time alot, never letting you know the complete story, making it all that more intriguing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kdrapak | 6/22/2011

    " So not what I expected - looking for this book to give me as a grown up what her earlier books gave me as a teenager. Characters didn't find a place in my world and I forgot them as soon as I was done reading. Wonder if Hinton will try others? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 5/3/2011

    " This is one of my favorite books ever. Hawkes Harbor is amazing for teens and even adults. It has profanity, sex, action, adventure, fantasy, and much more. It is a very thrilling books and it has an incredible twist in it. Very enjoyable by book by S.E. Hinton. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julia | 4/29/2011

    " Vampires. . .are you kidding me?! I love, love, love The Outsiders. I wanted to love this novel, too, but I almost stopped reading it. I only finished it so that I would know how it ended. Very disappointing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jacque | 4/5/2011

    " This book was just really strange and all over the place. Totally different than what I expected, and not in a good way. I wouldn't bother with this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 3/22/2011

    " Kinda good in a really weird way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tony | 1/28/2011

    " I recommend to anyone that like to read about young adult fiction. this is really interest book and I love it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mina | 10/20/2010

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 9/9/2010

    " I had high hopes for this book, but alas, it was very disappointing. I thought being on the New Yorks Times Bestseller list, it would be better. "
