Available for the first time on Amazon Kindle, Kealan Patrick Burke’s Bram Stoker Award-winning coming of age story The Turtle Boy.
School is out and summer has begun. For eleven year old Timmy Quinn and his best friend Pete Marshall, the dreary town of Delaware Ohio becomes a place of magic, hidden treasure and discovery.
But on the day they encounter a strange young boy sitting on the bank of Myers Pond a pond playground rumor says may hide turtles the size of Buicks everything changes.
For it soon becomes apparent that dark secrets abound in the little community, secrets which come cupped in the hands of the dead, and in a heartbeat, Timmy and Petes summer of wonder becomes a season of terror, betrayal and murder.

“THE TURTLE BOY is fresh in a way that most horror fiction is not. It is equal parts hopeful and shocking, mixing carefully drawn scenes of horror with passages that sing with innocent wonder.”
—Mark Justice, HELLNOTES

“The Turtle Boy is a literate and haunting novella and serves as a fine showcase for the remarkable talent of its author.”
—Drew Williams, SURREAL Magazine

“Creepy and atmospheric, it will make you reminisce about your own youthful summers, but also make you look at them in a slightly different, darker light.”

“[a] disturbing coming-of-age story…”
—Publishers Weekly

“Burke masterfully recreates that magical time from childhood: summer vacation…More than a simple trip down memory lane, the short novel pulls readers along a dark path toward horrifying events.”
