Overview

Three-time International Horror Guild and Shirley Jackson Award Winner Glen Hirshberg brings his flair for the grim, grisly, and emotionally harrowing to "Good Girls, "the standalone sequel to Motherless Child.

Still in college, Rebecca is the responsible one. She keeps her friends from getting too crazy though Human Curling is kind of out there. She s a safety valve for Joel, her foster father, and helps out at Halfmoon House, which he runs with his wife, Amanda Rebecca s foster mother, who makes sure her children able to protect themselves. To take care of themselves.

Mostly Rebecca takes care of everyone else. She works at the university s crisis center, doing whatever she can to help the troubled souls who call the hotline. Until the night he calls.

Jess has lost so much: her job, her home her daughter Natalie, no longer human thanks to the creature who called himself the Whistler. She tried desperately to save Natalie, but in the end, Jess herself pulled the trigger and killed her child.

Deep in mourning, Jess flees, with the remnants of her family: the man she loved, seriously injured; her infant grandson, somehow still innocent and pure. And Sophie.

Natalie s best friend, Jess s almost-daughter, and a mother herself, though her son is dead. Sophie s alive but not alive half-mad, half vampire, half a person and Jess s responsibility.

The Whistler is hunting Jess. She killed his Mother and Natalie, who was his destiny. But he s not so single-minded that he can t have a little fun along the way, take what he needs from Rebecca s friends and family take Rebecca for his own .

Fates collide in a small town where fear and love are two sides of the same coin and life and death lie far too close together."

Set in the immediate aftermath of the justly lauded Motherless Child, this intense novel weaves its themes of love, loss, family obligation, and personal sacrifice into another richly textured tale of supernatural horror. The Whistler, the monster who turned previous heroines Natalie and Sophie into vampires, is still on the prowl and determined to revenge himself on Natalies mother, Jess, who killed her own daughter and thus deprived him of his Destiny with her. The Whistlers pursuit of Jess eventually enmeshes Rebecca, a college student in East Dunham, N.H., who babysits Natalies orphaned son and is beginning to feel a daughterly bond with Jess that she never knew during her own childhood. The novels suspenseful finale is a bravura display of storytelling finesse; its visceral horrors are intensified by the care that Hirshberg has taken to develop the emotional lives of the characters on whom the horrors are inflicted. A subplot involving the Whistlers extended monster family suggests that Hirshberg is expanding his vampire mythos for future stories. (Feb.)
