For twenty years the officers in the Pennsylvania State Police Barracks have kept a secret in Shed B. A vintage Buick which lures the troopers to come and take a look.
Young Ned Wilcox, son of the recently deceased officer Curt, has started hanging around the Barracks. One day he can't resist peeking through the windows. And it's time to share the secret.
The veteran troopers sit Ned down on the smoking bench and tell him every skin-curdling detail - from the Buick's arrival to the terrifying light-shows and what it sucks in and breathes out. For the Buick is a conduit to another world.
As King puts it, 'when we confront the deep and authentic unknown, we glimpse that place where our familiar universe stops'.

From a Buick 8
Been on Audible and read some of the reviews for this book. I dont think some people realise that a majority of books by Stephen King are part of the much bigger story of The Dark Tower series. Salems lot, The Talisman, Black house etc etc etc. I think this is one of them. With references to The Low Men from Hearts in Atlantis, which in turn references the breakers of the beam, which as we all know are being used to break the beams, hence the Dark Tower series.
This is getting more complicated as i continue!!!
The point is, to get and understand Stephen Kings books, its best to read them all!! In sequence! Because there is one hell of a big epic story where all books come together as part of the Dark Tower series!
FROM A BUICK 8
This book didn’t quite come up to my expectations of previous Stephen King novels I have read.
The plot was thin and at times monotonous and drawn out, not one of his best I am sorry to say!
If you want a good Stephen King read try Dr Sleep or Needful things
