Review of ‘Hush, Child’

Posted on Updated on

With his life in shambles, Judah Greer is an alcoholic who has no desire for sobriety. But, when his estranged daughter, Mara, reenters his life, he finds hope. Then, Mara becomes the 25th victim of a serial kidnapper, and Judah is determined to save her. With the help of Anna, a mysterious young girl who might or might not even exist, and an NYPD detective on her own vendetta, he sets out to redeem himself.

Hush, Child by David Halvorsen is a supernatural thriller that explores the dimensions of spirituality and the supernatural, addiction, and love, as Judah stumbles his way into the shadow world between reality and tortured dreams. Although the prose tends to the purple in many places, the pacing and occasional digressions into the characters’ backgrounds keeps the interest level high.

I give it three and a half stars.
