It’s been ten years since the events that changed Johnny Merrimon’s life and rocked his hometown to the core. Since then, Johnny has fought to maintain his privacy, but books have been written of his exploits; there’s talk of a movie. Living half-wild on the vast acreage he’s inherited, Johnny knows every pool and hill and hidden glade. His only connection to normal life is his old friend, Jack. They’re not boys anymore, but the bonds remain. What they shared. What they lost. But Jack sees danger in The Hush; he sees darkness, intent, and a terrible will. Johnny will discuss none of it, but there are the things he knows, the things he can do. A lesser friend might accept such abilities as a gift, but Jack has felt what moves in the swamp: the cold of it, the unspeakable fear. Ranging in scope from Africa and the antebellum south to the despair of the Great Depression, The Hush is a study of forgotten truths and a stunning reminder of why John Hart has won critical acclaim and the abiding love of readers around the world. Beautifully crafted and thrilling to the end, this book is an exploration of things unseen and the ties that bind, of friendship and persistence and forgotten power. After five consecutive New York Times bestsellers, it’s easy to see why John Hart still warrants comparison to such luminaries as Pat Conroy, Cormac McCarthy, and Scott Turow.
