Staff Pick: Darling Jim

Book Cover

Darling Jim by Christian Moerk

This debut novel opens with the discovery of a grisly murder scene and quickly unfolds into the story of three Irish sisters and their aunt who all fall for the same man -- a darkly seductive lothario who travels the countryside telling mesmerizing tales. Wherever he goes, dead bodies soon follow, yet few seem to notice, blinded as they are by his charming ways. Part folktale, part gothic romance, part supernatural thriller, this complex story-within-a-story is a satisfying, genre-bending read.
