The legendary author of The Outsiders returns with her first new novel in more than fifteen years!

An orphan and a bastard, Jamie grew up tough enough to handle almost anything. He survived foreign prisons, smugglers, pirates, gunrunners, and shark attacks. But what he finds in the quote town of Hawkes Harbor, Delaware, was enough to drive him almost insane—and change his life forever.

Praise For Hawkes Harbor

“Vampires, pirate and lusty French socialites: now that's a recipe for a good time. Hinton has written an adult novel that can awaken the rough-and-tumble child in anyone. Hinton's ability to engage hasn't faded.” —The New York Times

“A dark, funny, scary, suspenseful tale that will entertain mainstream and adventure/horror readers alike…. The basic elements that made her book The Outsiders a long-time bestseller are present in this rousing read. This is a contemporary Treasure Island with a genre-bending twist.” —Publishers Weekly

“I gave myself to Hawkes Harbor from the very first page. I loved the mystery of it. Unfolding so deliberately. And then such horror, I wanted to echo Jaime's fevered plea: ‘Don't let it be dark…Don't let it be dark!' ” —Bestselling author R. L. Stine

“Set in Delaware and spanning the decades from the 1950s to the '70s, Hawkes Harbor is an adventure tale with plenty of twists, turns and action.” —San Antonio Express-News

“Hinton offers a suspenseful, thought-provoking book, and the cross-genre plot makes for an entertaining read.” —The Oklahoman
