Creating George Stark was easy. Getting rid of him won't be...
The sparrows are flying again. The idea - unbidden, inexplicable - haunts the edge of Thad Beaumont's mind.
Thad should be happy. For years now it is his secret persona 'George Stark', author of super-violent pulp thrillers, who has paid the family bills. But now, Thad is writing seriously again under his own name, and his menacing pseudonym has been buried forever.
And yet... the sparrows are flying again, and something is terribly wrong in Thad Beaumont's world.
The protagonist of King's ``top-notch'' novel is literary novelist Thad Beaumont, whose greatest success has come with three gory thrillers written under the pseudonym George Stark. Beaumont is threatened by a blackmailer who may reveal Stark's identity; Beaumont kills off Stark instead; and Stark goes on a murderous rampage. ``Wondrously frightening . . . among the best of his voluminous work,'' maintained PW.
