Small details give us a taste of life during World War II, the day-to-day of an insular community during a tragic time. Although there are few surprises, the pages keep turning.
Unless, of course, you count the secrets. Charlie -- Charlie Worth leaned back in his ergonomically correct desk chair and shot a wad of paper at the wastebasket with an over-the-shoulder hook shot. He missed, and the crumpled memo joined a flock of others surrounding the metal can. This presidential-vacation thing was getting out of hand. Charlie was determined to be the only feature writer not camping out in Great Harbor for the proposed visit.
Besides, he kept pointing out to any who would listen, the Clintons would probably choose the Vineyard. Heck of a lot better golf to be had there than anywhere near this hole-in-the-wall vacation destination.

Now, if the Clintons did go to the Vineyard, maybe he'd tag along. At thirty-nine, there were few places Charlie hadn't been to during his journalistic career: He'd been to most every Caribbean island, Belize, and rugged Alaskan camps while he'd done a five-year stint as a travel writer. This feature-writer thing, though, was alternately fun and boring. Craving a settled existence, Charlie had given up the travel for the post, sacrificing adventure for a stable home with a garden he could enjoy through all of its seasons.
After eighteen months, though, Charlie found himself daydreaming of chucking the whole security thing and following in the footsteps of the great travel writers, immersing himself in some rare culture, then writing a whiz-bang best-selling memoir. But even as he played with the notion, Charlie knew that one thing kept him close to home.
The same thing that had brought him back to the paper and a desk with a once-a-week byline. Charlie got up and stretched, reaching for the ceiling. On the way down, he rubbed his hands across his middle in the hope that it had gone away. Leaning over the keyboard, he sent a quick E-mail to his buddy Dave in Sports to get a racquetball date set up.
Conscience momentarily salved, he headed towards the coffeepot. As luck would have it, Priscilla St. Lorraine was on her way to his cubicle and caught him before he could take a quick right towards the men's room, which, so far, she hadn't yet invaded.
It was only when Priscilla told him where the plane had been barged that Charlie's interest was piqued a little.
When Charlie was little, maybe eight or nine, he and his older sisters had found a Jumping-Jacks shoe box filled with uncatalogued photos. Most of the photos had quasi-familiar adults in them, people they called by the honorific Aunt or Uncle. Uncle Jack, who was Daddy's partner, and his wife, Aunt Joan, dressed up in party clothes, martini glasses held up to toast some New Year long ago. There were pictures of their parents, looking odd in their old-fashioned hairstyles and out-of-date clothes.
Winter Mike walks along the shore alone. He threw a stick for his dog, Amos, to fetch.
Mike got up for work, knowing something was his fault. Mike's relationship with his mother turned bitter after she was remarried; however, because of Terry's persistence, he still went to see her in the hospital before she died.
To the shock of Mike and his step-father, Mike's mother had left the house to him. She loved movies, and while she would sit and talk about the actors and how each movie was made, he would sit and watch her.
While visiting his Aunt Jelly, Mike recounts the day Terry was arrested.
He and Terry had been waiting in a deserted parking lot for the drug dealers they were doing business with. Mike goes across the street to the Jiffy Mart for a slurpie. While waiting for the clerk to ring up his purchase, Mike sees the police lights down the alleyway where he had been moments before with Terry.
When questioned, Mike said he was at home watching television; his alibi fit with Terry's story that he was alone in the drug deal. Mike did not go to Terry's sentencing. Everybody who had gone said it was a great party. Mike tries to throw an unruly customer out of the bar, but the man punches him.
Mike and the man fight and Mike was put into handcuffs by a police officer. Ed assures him that the man will drop all the charges.
Mike talks to Ed about Terry and Ed tells him that Terry may still come out of his sentence alright. Jamie is an orphan, raised by cruel nuns in the Bronx. He attends high school, then has a three-year stint in the Navy. A life on the ocean waves appeals to young Jamie, and after his naval service he takes up with Kellen Quinn, a silver-tongued Irish gunrunner, smuggler and general ne'er-do-well who is by far the novel's best-drawn character.
There's an odd, naive time-capsule quality to "Hawkes Harbor. The vampire angle is tossed into the novel nearly halfway through.

A novel about the grownup Ponyboy or Tex could have been brilliant- so could a book featuring an entirely new cast of kids adrift in a new century. Sadly, that's not the novel Hinton has written. From the description, you are given to believe this will be strife with vampires and action and when in reality, it is no such thing.
