BOOK DESCRIPTION:

{MORE ABOUT THE DEVIL WALKS IN MATTINGLY}
For the three people tortured by their secret complicity in a young man’s untimely death, redemption is what they most long for . . . and the last thing they expect to receive.
It has been twenty years since Philip McBride’s body was found along the riverbank in the dark woods known as Happy Hollow.

His death was ruled a suicide.

But three people have carried the truth ever since—Philip didn’t kill himself that day.

He was murdered.

Each of the three have wilted in the shadow of their sins.

Jake Barnett is Mattingly’s sheriff, where he spends his days polishing the fragile shell of the man he pretends to be.

His wife, Kate, has convinced herself the good she does for the poor will someday wash the blood from her hands.

And high in the mountains, Taylor Hathcock lives in seclusion and fear, fueled by madness and hatred.

Yet what cannot be laid to rest is bound to rise again.

Philip McBride has haunted Jake’s dreams for weeks, warning that he is coming back for them all.

When Taylor finds mysterious footprints leading from the Hollow, he believes his redemption has come.

His actions will plunge the quiet town of Mattingly into darkness.

These three will be drawn together for a final confrontation between life and death . . .

Between truth and lies.

MY REVIEW

There are no words to describe the literary feast that Billy Coffey has created!
The writing style alone is enough to keep me reading and reading and reading, yet there is more underneath the words that drown my senses. There are characters who are so real, I feel I’ve known them forever. Jake, Kate and Taylor embody the various ways we cope with the past…rationalize it, strive to make up for it, bury it!
This book definitely gives you a lot to think about- even though it is a work of fiction.
I encourage you to delve into this story with an open heart and take the journey with these characters…it is one you will not soon forget.
I’m looking so forward to picking up a copy of Coffey’s first novel- When Mockingbirds Sing.

*****5/5 STARS- LOVE LOVE LOVE IT; GET YOUR OWN COPY!!!*****
