A modern gothic novel of suspense that reveals, through their diaries, the story of sisters who fall in love with a beguiling stranger, and of the town that turns a blind eye to his murderous ways. 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.

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.

Darling Jim: A Novel. Written by Christian Moerk.

Narrated by Justine Eyre and Stephen Hoye. Niall must now continue his dangerous hunt for the truth-and for the vanished third sister-while there's still time.

Christian Mørk, Stephen Hoye. Justine Eyre This is the first novel from Moerk, and based on this book, I will be on the lookout for his next work. Like his con artist storyteller, Jim Quick, Christian Moerk weaves a Gothic tale of suspense that draws its audience in, compelling us to find out how it all ends. The structure is intricate, but adds to the mood. The book opens with mail carrier Desmond finding the body of an old woman on his route. This is the first novel from Moerk, and based on this book, I will be on the lookout for his next work. I would recommend this book to those who like quick witted mysteries/thrillers with a generous helping of humor.

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 about Darling Jim: A Novel (7):
I'm a Russian Occupant
DARLING JIM's characters are not only written with vibrant dimension, they will slowly draw the reader in and never let them go until the very end! Often opting for the classical, I was intrigued at the continual twists and turns of this complex tale within a tale set in many an Irish venue-
And though the story is surrounded by the lovely idyllic Hills of Ireland, there clearly lurks a danger there that cannot be underestimated; just when the audience thinks they've got the plot figured, they are taken for a loop!
The fact that the dimensional & richly developed female POVs were written by a man is indiscernible...a quality that many female and male readers alike will find appealing-
As a credentialed Literature Teacher, I would happily recommend this novel supplement Senior High & College Lit level classes, and have gifted this book to several individuals who have also exclaimed they have enjoyed the read greatly-
In short, and to recap, DARLING JIM is a Masterful Must Read!
Pick up a copy poste haste; you'll be glad you did!

This book was such a joy to read - one of those books you can't put down once you start it. From page one the novel grabs you with a dramatic jolt and sets the stage of immense curiosity as to what happened to these three sisters andd their aunt.

The author uses great literary skill to tell us just that. The introduction of the diary and using it to tell much of the story is very creative. Through this means we discover the true story of the Walsh girls and the mystery of the great Jim. He is such a huge part of this story but what is he all about. Do you really dare find out?

This book comes across as part fairytale, part horror, part suspense and part gothic. All of it works. The character of Niall the postman is a very creative, realistic persona. All the characters are fully developed. I gave the book 4 stars for a few times the diary sequences did drag a little but I highly recommend this book. It is all the things I said above and written expertly. The author has provided a great journey for the reader to take.

The opening pages of 'Darling Jim' are indeed emotionally rough going. I almost didn't stick with it but did... and about 4 chapters in realized I was reading a masterpiece of modern storytelling. It is a rollicking 21st century fairy tale told in exquisite crackerjack prose by the diverse voices of some of the most fascinating, finely wrought characters in literature.
Whew! I've run out of superlatives. Didja guess this is one of my all time favorite books?

I believe bad timing; it's release during the Millennium series craze, is the reason the world never went nuts over 'Darling Jim'.

Just read it.

Even though some of the Irish vocabulary was unfamiliar and cumbersome, I loved this book enough to give it 5 stars. The first thing I did when I finished the book was get on Amazon to find more by this author, and was very disappointed when I couldn't find anything else. Maybe he has another pen name(?). The author did an outstanding job with characterization. The antagonist was dark, dangerous, and alluring, and the author gave the reader an intimate look at his prey and how easy it was for them to fall victim. Most importantly, in my opinion, the book had a tremendously satisfying ending. I would love to see this made into a movie.
Road.to sliver
I enjoyed this book. I couldn't put it down. I just had to know more. I love the way it was a story within a story, it was all tied together amazingly!

As someone who rarely reads fiction I really enjoyed this novel. It has turned me on to this genre and I intend on reading more mysteries. This novel was entertaining, vivid and at times felt very real to me. I felt a part of these characters lives and I loved uncovering their stories throughout the novel.

I would highly recommend this novel!

Not the best book I ever read, but a decent listen on long card rides. The characters are interesting and the story-line keep you engaged.
This was a wonderful book and I hated it to end. The characters were masterfully drawn and the story line sucked you in and kept you there. Best book I've read in a long time.
