Former Los Angeles homicide detective Jack Sawyer, now living in a small Wisconsin town, is called on by the local police chief: Can Jack help his inexperienced force solve a string of gruesome murders that has struck the region? Although Jack cannot recall the events twenty years ago that led him to a parallel universe to save his dying mother, he senses an otherworldly force behind the killings. Drawn back to the Territories and his hidden past, Jack must now encounter the ferocious evils sheltered inside a terrifying house at the end of a deserted tract of forest.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Two master craftsmen, each at the top of his game. Hugely pleasurable.”

    Washington Post Book World

  • “Bloody good…This partnership brings out both authors’ strengths—King’s down-and-dirty storytelling and Straub’s more sweeping literary style…What a ride it is.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Like fine tailors, King and Straub weave their distinct voices together to create an almost seamless…tale of suspense…Builds with a slow, seductive momentum that explodes like firecrackers in a beer can…A wild, fantastical romp.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “A brilliant and challenging dark fantasy…There’s so much to revel in, from expertly executed sequences of terror, awe, or passion—the novel is a deep reservoir of genuine emotion…A high point in both the King and Straub canons.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Muller’s finest gift to audio must be his uncanny ability to sense, develop, and portray dozens of complex human and inhuman personalities in a single production. Muller has fun with some, condemns others, and renders even the bit players unforgettable. All of them dance to the seductive music of his lyrical narrative, which invites us into the party as well.”


  • A #1 New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller
  • Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award
  • A 2001Bram Stoker Award Nominee
