Description

An unspeakable crime. A confounding investigation. At a time when the King brand has never been stronger, he has delivered one of his most unsettling and compulsively readable stories.

An eleven-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, King’s propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face? When the answer comes, it will shock you as only Stephen King can.

  • Fantastic Book

    From Dead girl walking
    I have spent the past year catching up on some good old Stephen King classics and just happened to pick this up on a routine trip to Wally World where it’s brand new. Classic King here. Nothing really overly new or shocking about the story but his ability to tell stories has certainly becoming better with time and this book is DEFINITELY worth a read. (Spoiler Maybe?) There is also a character from the “Bill Hodges” Trilogy involved in this book in case any fans of that series are interested to know. But I’m not giving out the name. You gotta read it for yourself ladies and gentlemen.
