Todd Bowden is an apt pupil. Good grades, good family, a paper route. But he is about to meet a different kind of teacher: Mr. Dussander. Todd knows all about Dussander’s dark past. The torture. The death. The decades-old manhunt Dussander has escaped to this day. Yet Todd doesn’t want to turn him in. Todd wants to know more. Much more. He is about to learn the real meaning of power—and the seductive lure of evil.

    " This book is pure evil, but I truly enjoyed it. Todd Bowden is a paper boy/high school student who discovers his neighbor, Kurt Dussander, is a wanted Nazi war criminal. Basically Todd becomes engrossed in Dussander's terrible war crime stories and goes over to his house frequently. The creepy part is that Todd has no intention of turning Dussander in..he just wants more and more information out of him. In hindsight, the only thing I really didn't like about the book was that the plot was highly unrealistic--as most of King's books are. The language King uses is sinister and excruciatingly detailed which makes you get lost in images, which in turn makes the demented events he describes seem believeable at the time. But certainly looking back on the book, the murderous nature that errupts in Todd is complete and utter nonsense!! "

    " Ah Papa Stevesie, I feel so safe and warm in your arms. This was such a good book. More thriller than horror, and I think that's what he does best. There's no rationalising away horrifying things, just straight up Nazi old men and creepy young boys. Great book. "

    " Creepy. Disturbing. Everything a King story should be. "
