Still on Herring Cove Road: Hickory, Dickory, Death
A story of friendship, loyalty... and survival.
Dewey is moving, and he couldn't be more excited; though, he's alone in his enthusiasm. Lisa, his mother, and recently retired Avriel, his next-door neighbor and best buddy, don't share in his excitement regarding the move from a suburban bungalow to a dirty basement-level apartment in the lower-class area, where two murders have recently occurred.
This sometimes lighthearted and at other times intense novel follows naive Dewey as he befriends two 'different' streetwise boys, learns the pros and cons of friendship and is then stalked by a killer preying on children.
Please note: Within this continuing story of Avriel and his friends are two short sections (several pages) that may be disturbing to some readers.
ABOUT THE SERIES
Taking place in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the series follows the sometimes amusing, sometimes heartwarming, sometimes heartbreaking and sometimes tragic events that follow an introverted old Jewish man's retirement as he reluctantly befriends a naive and lonely boy, his struggling single mother, and lastly, a boy streetwise beyond his years.
"I don't usually enjoy books in a series but this was an exception. It was uplifting, and interesting with some twists I didn't see coming...It wasn't all sweet and goody two shoes either. It had some dark and realistic moments and characters. Very well written." -(Amazon Customer)
