Description
1979: Seventeen-year-old Alice Pearson can't wait to graduate from high school and escape the small town in upstate New York where she grew up. Alice and her three closest friends meet the enigmatic Jack Wyck. Enticed by his philosophy and the promise of a constant party, Alice and her friends join Mr. Wyck's small group of devoted followers. Their idyll takes an increasingly sinister turn. Mr. Wyck's grand scheme goes wrong, culminating in a night of horrific murders. Twenty years later Alice is a professor of folklore, but an acclaimed filmmaker threatens to expose her secret past when he begins making a documentary about Jack Wyck's crimes and the cult-like following that he continues to attract even from his prison cell.

        January 25, 2016
        In the tantalizing opening, set in 1999, of Hahn’s carefully crafted first novel, documentary filmmaker Hans Loomis steels himself to open a package, covered with drawings of snakes, birds, skulls, and flowers, from Jack Wyck, a convicted felon. That Hans has asked Wyck about something that happened two decades earlier is a sign to Wyck that he’ll soon be out of prison. A flashback to upstate New York in 1979 introduces 17-year-old Alice Pearson, a high school student who, with three friends, becomes involved with the mysterious Wyck, who lives in an isolated farmhouse. Twenty years later, Alice, now a folklore professor, is researching ballads about a murdered girl’s body transformed into a musical instrument that’s able to identify her killer. After Hans contacts Alice about his film about Wyck, she’s chilled to learn that Wyck has fans who have created a website featuring images from his past crimes. Well-wrought leads enhance the effective, gradual reveal of exactly what put Wyck behind bars. Agent: Jessica Papin, Dystel & Goderich Literary Management.

        April 25, 2016
        Hahn’s debut novel time-hops between the year 2000, when filmmaker Hans Loomis is prepping a documentary on Jack Wyck, a charismatic cult leader whose rabid followers have increased during his 20-year imprisonment for murder, and 1977 in upstate New York, where Wyck seduces the story’s protagonist, 17-year-old high school student Alice Pearson, and many of her friends. The frequent shifts in chronology, with flashbacks taken from several points of view, are identified by headings, but reader Huber clarifies them even more by developing voices that match the main characters as they age. Her teen Alice’s girlishness as she meets, loves, and eventually aids in jailing Wyck is recognizably transformed into a thoughtful 37-year-old version whose quiet, incognito life as a folklore professor is threatened by the documentary. Wyck’s smarmy, seductive whisper, which lured the kids into sharing his farmhouse and lifestyle, is more relaxed and casual two decades later with Hans, but quickly resurfaces when he sees the filmmaker’s female assistant. Huber’s performance covers this exquisitely stitched novel’s full array of emotions—from blissful joy to fury—along with dreamy drug sequences and the surprising murder that rests uneasily at its heart. A Regan Arts hardcover.
