JOHN HART IN THE HOUSE!
Tuesday, March 13th at 7PM
This event is free and open to the public. The book must be purchased at Inkwood Books to have it signed by the author.
ABOUT THE BOOK: At twenty-three, Johnny lives alone in his place in the wilderness—six thousand acres of storied swamp land and rocky terrain known as Hush Arbor. Thanks to a clause in the deed, Johnny inherited the property from the line of Isaac Freemantle, a slave freed by his ancestor, John Merrimon. When a female descendant of Isaac challenges his ownership, Johnny seeks the help of his old friend, Jack Cross, Attorney at Law. Beyond legal problems, Jack is concerned about Hush Arbor’s grip on Johnny. Jack has only an inkling of how Hush Arbor makes Johnny feel… and know. Yet, its gifts—heightened awareness, amazing healing abilities—have a dark side. Increasingly, Johnny’s sleep is disturbed by vivid, visceral nightmares, with chilling images of Hush Arbor’s notorious hanging tree and an alluring dark-skinned girl clutching a bloody knife. Unfolding a plot featuring a greedy billionaire hunter, grisly murders, the legacy of slavery, and formidable supernatural forces,THE HUSH keeps the tension mounting and the startling twists coming.
