Description-
  • When two sisters and their aunt are found dead in their suburban Dublin home, it seems that the secret behind their untimely demise will never be known. But then Niall, a young mailman, finds a mysterious diary in the post office's dead-letter bin. From beyond the grave, Fiona Walsh shares the most tragic love story he's ever heard---and her tale has only just begun.

    Niall soon becomes enveloped by the mystery surrounding itinerant storyteller Jim, who traveled through Ireland enrapturing audiences and wooing women with his macabre mythic narratives. Captivated by Jim, townspeople across Ireland thought it must be a sad coincidence that horrific murders trailed him wherever he went---and they failed to connect that the young female victims, who were smitten by the newest bad boy in town, bore an all too frightening similarity to the victims in Jim's own fictional plots.

    The Walsh sisters, fiercely loyal to one another, were not immune to "darling" Jim's powers of seduction, but found themselves in harm's way when they began to uncover his treacherous past. Niall must now continue his dangerous hunt for the truth---and for the vanished third sister---while there's still time. And in the woods, the wolves from Jim's stories begin to gather.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine The riveting gothic thriller DARLING JIM envelops the listener in two intertwined tales that begin with the ghastly discovery of two sisters and their aunt--found dead in a Dublin home. The spellbinding story not only chills with menace, lust, and murder, it is underscored by storyteller (in Gaelic--SEANACHAI) Jim's retelling of authentic Irish folklore of a particularly lycanthropic nature. Jim's trail of diabolical mayhem is revealed in the diaries of hostage victims Fiona and Roisin, who are portrayed with delightful inflections by Justine Eyre. Equally comfortable with the Irish accents of the contemporary account and ancient Celtic legend, Eyre has a charming lilt and knows how to use emphasis to create compelling horror. Stephen Hoye depicts Niall, the knight-errant who finds Jim's diaries and commits to a quest to solve the mystery they recount. Hoye speaks in engaging melancholy tones and skillfully provides the secondary characters with an array of accents. Both narrators deliver intense interpretations, in high contrast to each other, which create a measured eloquence for this vivid novel. A.W.
