Murder has come to a quiet rural town in New England during the 1930s. Is it possible that children might be involved?
The story of Thomas Tryon’s exploration into the odd behaviors of the young brothers Niles and Holland Perry is both well written and well executed. The small-town descriptions were realistic and the plot twists kept me guessing but the unexpected final revelation involving the siblings haunted me for days. Tryon’s work with the 1972 movie of the same name was just as shocking and I consider both works to be classics.
Sharing a special part of yourself can only make others happy.
