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.

    " A really good book is one that I never want to end, and this one does this for me. Something that will kill the best audiobook is a narrator that just reads it as opposed to being a part of it. The tone of the voice matters. This narrator Will Patton is my new favorite, I love his voice. It reminds me of George Carlins voice. "

    " Another truly wonderous novel by Mr. King! I couldn't quit listening, and was in such a hurry to find out what happened next that I had to make myself rewind some parts and listen again to make sure I understood every single detail. As the violent world of crime and serial murder collide with the supernatural, characters are forced to face their fears and limitations in order to stop the murderer. With a visit from one of my favorite King characters, Holly Gibney (Mercedes Benz series), the other characters in this novel are so close to home that I wanted the story to continue on past the ending. Finally, Stephen King couldn't find a better narrator than Will Patton-I could listen to his voice tell any story, but he has just the right tone and inflection to keep you hanging on the edge of your seat. Overall, this is definitely one of my favorite novels of the year, and I will listen to it again, very soon. "
