Publisher's Summary

Turtle Moon transports the listener to Verity, Florida, a place where anything can happen during the month of May, when migrating sea turtles come to town, mistaking the glow of the streetlights for the moon. A young single mother is murdered in her apartment and her baby is gone. Keith, a 12-year-old boy in the same apartment building - the self-styled "meanest boy" in town - also disappears.
In pursuit of the baby, the boy and the killer, are Keith's divorced mother and a cop who himself was once considered the meanest boy in town. Their search leads them down the humid byways of a Florida populated almost exclusively by people from somewhere else; emotional refugees seeking sanctuary along the swampy coast.

Critic Reviews

"She knows how to manipulate suspense and tug the heartstrings; with its cinematic flow and larger-than-life characters, her novel will make a wonderful movie." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Pure Hoffman: her take on the tropics is haunting, hypnotic, and hot as a fever dream." ( Kirkus Reviews)

An enchanting story

This is a very enjoyable story. I am glad I went with the audio version because the narrator's voice is perfect for the story.
