At once gruesome and tender, Hawk Mountain vividly depicts the turbulence of coming of age and the violence of repressed attraction. It offers a compelling look at how love and hate can be intertwined until the last breath.
Thirty-three-year-old Todd is playing at the beach with his son, Anthony, when he catches sight of an approaching figure. Instantly, he recognizes Jack, his high school tormentor. Radiant, repentant, and overjoyed to have 'run into' Todd, Jack suggests a meal to catch up. And can he spend the night?
What follows is a fast-paced story of obsession and suspense, as Jack gaslights his way back into Todd's life, pushing his old "friend" to the brink.
Conner Habib's disturbing and emotionally riveting debut is a horror novel about partners and friends, fathers and sons, bullies and scapegoats.
