The Lovely Bones

Hal Heckler

Character Analysis

Hal is Samuel's older brother. He rides a motorcycle and has a motorcycle repair shop across from the sinkhole where Susie's body is dumped. Although not a major character, he becomes very important to all the Salmons. Not only does he spend quality time with Buckley, and give Lindsey rides, but through his connection with the son of one of Harvey's first victims, Sophie Cichetti, he helps law enforcement connect some of the dots with regard to Mr. Harvey.
