Winner of the Bram Stoker Award, and the first book in the Timmy Quinn series.

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 Pete's summer of wonder becomes a season of terror, betrayal and murder.

"The Turtle Boy is a fine example of the Dark American Pastoral--not the heart of darkness, a dead end of absolute despair, but a more shadowy realm that is equally troubling for its mingling of the sad and the sinister, of dreams and the things that kill dreams." - Thomas Ligotti, author of MY WORK IS NOT YET DONE and TEATRO GROTTESCO

"Kealan Patrick Burke's 'The Turtle Boy' is a tale of dark secrets that combines skillfully etched characters with rich, evocative prose to create a haunting depiction of relationships shredded by violence and the supernatural. A highly memorable and disquieting work." - Chet Williamson, author of SECOND CHANCE and ASH WEDNESDAY

"Strange and out-of-kilter, a cold breeze come from nowhere on a sultry day; The Turtle Boy is a tale that takes your hand and leads you to a creepy, unforgiving place, a place you can never leave." - Michael Marshall, author of THE STRAW MEN & BAD THINGS
