The Hollow OnesA horrific crime that defies explanation a rookie FBI agent in uncharted territory and an extraordinary hero for the ages an investigation spirals out of control in this heart pounding thriller Odessa Hardwicke's life is derailed when she's forced to turn her gun on her partner Walt Leppo a decorated FBI agent who turns suddenly inexplicably violent while apprehending a rampaging murderer The shooting justified by self defense shakes the young FBI agent to her core Devastated Odessa is placed on desk leave pending a full investigation But what most troubles Odessa isn't the tragedy itself it's the shadowy presence she thought she saw fleeing the deceased agent's body after his death uestioning her future with the FBI and her sanity Hardwicke accepts a low level assignment to clear out the belongings of a retired agent in the New York office What she finds there will put her on the trail of a mysterious figure named Hugo Blackwood a man of enormous means who claims to have been alive for centuries and who is either an unhinged lunatic or humanity's best and only defense against unspeakable evil From the authors who brought you The Strain Trilogy comes a strange terrifying and darkly wondrous world of suspense mystery and literary horror The Hollow Ones is a chilling spell binding tale a hauntingly original new fable from Academy Award winning director Guillermo del Toro and best selling author Chuck Hogan featuring their most fascinating character yet I read the Strain series which is by the same two authors and this book is written with much of the same feel all the way down to the back and forth narrative with events from the past Also being the first in a series there is a lot of exposition to color in the characters and set a basis for the narrative This is generally fine but if too much is added the story becomes stretched between the past and present here it is three time periods and loses momentum This happens here enough to become tedious I slowly began to lose interest half way into the book as much of the back story could be deduced from the mechanics of the plot and the added detail only padded the story rather than add to itThe idea of the Hollow Ones is terrifying in its own right and it received far too little development other than a couple of seuences in the first third of the book Sadly had the book developed the implications of these horrors it would have created a tense and frightening stage for the main characters to take part inOverall there is some good stuff in here that is weighed down by to much unnecessary fluff In a desire to set up a concrete foundation and detailed characters the driving force of the plot begins to take a back stage Perhaps this team will be able to reignite the central idea now that the back story has been covered but I'm not sure I'll still be interested by then
