The second of a four-part audio series from Stephen King’s bestseller, Four Past Midnight

Recently divorced writer Mort Rainey is alone at Tashmore Lake—that is, until a figure named John Shooter arrives, pointing an accusing finger.

Shooter charges author Mort Rainey with stealing one of his story ideas. Rainey attempts to prove to his accuser that his own story was published first, but all evidence to support his argument begins to disappear, along with the people who might confirm his case.

    " Classic King. A writer is accused of plagiarism and confronts evil and madness. To say any more would spoil this novella for the unsuspecting reader. "

    " It was a good read i guess, extremely predictable - a bit average really. The film was actually better i think, especially because it had Johnny depp in it, woooo :) "

    " I didn't even know there was a "book" until I saw the movie with J. Depp and did some searching online. The book reads similar to how the movie went. I don't think this is one of King's better pieces and in this instance, the book to screen was much better. "

    " Good story, but wouldn't waste my time reading it. It's a little slow moving, but has great twists. I would recommend just watching the movie thought - then you get to see Johnny Depp! lol "
