Présentation de l'éditeur

"Don't never underestimate the power of doin' the right thing."



A TWISTER'S COMING. BIG! A MILE WIDE AND 8 MILES TALL.


The writhing finger of death hurls across the prairie toward Graham, Oklahoma, one Friday afternoon in May, 1963, on a collision course with the lives of 4 people—each of whom has already planned a personal rendezvous with death in some other form that day.

In Jonas Cunningham’s mind, what he’s planning isn’t murder. The handful of little white pills that will free his precious Maggie from the fog of Alzheimer's is a gift, a final act of unconditional love.

Jonas’s 16-year-old granddaughter, Joy, isn’t planning “murder” either. She's pregnant and sees only one way to keep from shaming her family. Secrets like that are hard to keep though, in a small town.

Joy's father, Rev. Mac MacIntosh has lost his wife and his faith and on Friday, he plans to commit professional suicide—not just leave his church, but abandon his call to ministry.

Princess has an appointment with the Reaper on Friday, too, one she’s been staring down for 14 years. At 5 o’clock, the state of Oklahoma will strap her into an electric chair called Sizzlin’ Suzie and turn on the juice.

But as the strange, psychic death row inmate meets daily with the minister during the final 5 days of her life, everything in both their lives begins to change. Princess knows—about Mac’s life and family. And sees—the Big Ugly coming to eat up the world. She sees other terrible things, too, and is determined to carry to her grave an incredible secret about the little sister she confessed to beheading a decade ago.

When the savage tornado roars with a sound like gravel in a blender into their small prairie town on that May Friday, all 4 of the people who'd penciled in "death" on their calendars actually do confront eternity.

But none of them comes to the crossroads of life and death by the path they'd planned or leaves with the result they expected.

In the end, the Big Ugly will decide who lives and who dies that day.

READERS' PRAISE


  • Ninie Hammon has become one of my favorite authors. She writes gripping stories peopled with believable characters. Her book "Sudan" moved me to tears, and "Five Days in May" is equally moving. She has a deep understanding of the human heart. Bestselling author Eric Wilson, Top 100 Amazon Reviewer

  • This is the kind of contemporary fiction I love! One character’s stunning sacrifice makes Five Days in May inspirational, but it’s filled with suspense, too, as a killer tornado gets closer and closer. Though set in the 1960s, the story felt contemporary, about a family with secrets that seemed so real sometimes I forgot it was fiction, a tale that nailed me to the chair with suspense. Inspirational without being sappy, believable drama—a great read.Marshall McCarroll

  • Ms. Hammond is a fine author, and her characters are richly developed to the point you hate to say goodbye. The touch of paranormal added exactly the suspense that was needed. Noelle

  • I knew a book with a tornado on the cover would be psychological suspense—and boy, was I right! A match-flame of tension builds a bonfire in this must-read psychological drama--with an ending you’ll never guess. Sarah Bridges

  • Murder sets the stage, but Five Days in May isn't typical crime fiction. It isn't typical ANYTHING--not a mystery, thrillers and suspense novel or even a paranormal suspense thriller. It's DIFFERENT, actually "inspirational" to feel the suspense grind tight as 3 generations battle a killer tornado--aided by a psychic death row inmate. Princess SEES the Big Ugly coming! Gripping fiction like this doesn't come along every day, folks; it'd be a "crime” to miss the surprise end.Cassandra

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Twister with a Twist 13 juillet 2011
Par Eric Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Ninie Hammon has become one of my favorite authors. She writes taut, gripping stories peopled with believable characters. Her book "Sudan" moved me to tears, and "Five Days in May" is an equally moving book.

The time is 1963, and a monster tornado is bearing down on a small town in Oklahoma. A prologue sets the scene for things to come, and then the story shifts back five days, taking us through the drama, mystery, and secrets of a collection of vastly different but intimately connected characters. Emily Prentiss, or "Princess," is the eccentric young woman facing death in the electric chair for her role in her younger sister's murder years ago. She is visited in her final days by Mac, a pastor who has all but lost his faith. Even as Mac tries to give comfort, he is dealing with his wife's death and his teen daughter's strange behavior. Unbeknownst to him, his daughter is pregnant and considering an abortion. Add to this mix Mac's father-in-law who has secrets and burdens of his own, and "Five Days in May" serves up a volatile concoction of family issues, spiritual questions, and suspense.

Although the setup takes a few chapters, it is well worth the wait. This is a tale that encompasses generations, yet compresses it all into five days. It is rich and suspenseful stuff. Once again, Ninie Hammon proves she has a way with words and a deep understanding of the human heart. These are powerful stories delivered in gripping fashion. And for a story about an ominous twister, "Five Days in May" also throws the reader a great twist in the last third of the book. I can't wait to read my next Hammon book, and everything else she has written.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Blown Away! 31 août 2011
Par Wolfe Moffat - Publié sur Amazon.com

Ninie Hammon continues to amaze me. I was floored when I read "Sudan," and I was flabbergasted when I experienced "Home Grown." Until you read Ninie, you have no clue what you are missing! So, with no pun intended, would I be blown away by "Five Days in May," and is she still that good. Oh, she's nothing short of amazing!

Reverend David McIntosh, also known as Mac, is at the end of his rope. With the death of his wife, he's basically going through the motions. Is it time to let go of something he isn't so sure of? He thinks the time is right to leave the ministry and pick up somewhere else. But he gets a phone call from the prison to visit a death row inmate in Emily Prentiss, and she goes by Princess. And Mac's first encounter with Princess leaves him somewhat frazzled, and in big-time shock. How could Princess, a convicted murderer, possibly know about his daughter? She doesn't know her name, no, but she does know that something isn't right.

Mac's father-in-law, Jonas, he meets Princess as well, and the two of them discover that this death row inmate might actually be one very special lady. Behind Princess there are secrets, and they need to come to light. And as these secrets begin to unfold, a tornado threatens to do some major damage in Graham, Oklahoma.

You could easily call this a storm within a number of storms. I call it insanely good storytelling! Ninie Hammon knows how to keep a reader's attention, and when it's time for that story to end, she'll let you know. I still have "The Memory Closet" waiting for me, and I'm also looking forward to "Black Sunshine." Oh yeah, I can't wait for EVERYTHING Ninie Hammon comes out with! I am once again blown away, and I hope you are too.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Great Read 11 avril 2014

I enjoyed tremendously the suspense of this novel. Good character development. The relationship between the soon to be executed prisoner and the minister's daughter developed in a meaningful manner. But to be honest I thought from almost the beginning when the prisoner relived the "murder" of Angel that I thought of the possibility of a relationship between those two characters. But the actual relationship was a surprise to me. A great story with many strong characters showing their good features as well as their flaws.

You wont be disappointed. I wasn't.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Compelling, intriguing fiction 29 mai 2014
Par Jacque - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Ninie Hammon's books are always page-turners, but Five Days in May was in my opinion one of her most gripping novels. Her ability to develop the characters throughout the book and yet not divulge their relationship to one another until the end was masterful. It was a page-turner that kept me reading late into the night!! But what I appreciated most was the redemptive analogy that was easily seen. It left me both emotionally moved and inspired in spirit.
