Publisher Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Peter Straub’s classic tale of horror, secrets, and the dangerous ghosts of the past...
 
What was the worst thing you’ve ever done?
 
In the sleepy town of Milburn, New York, four old men gather to tell each other stories—some true, some made-up, all of them frightening. A simple pastime to divert themselves from their quiet lives.
 
But one story is coming back to haunt them and their small town. A tale of something they did long ago. A wicked mistake. A horrifying accident. And they are about to learn that no one can bury the past forever...

Effective writing

Well written book that does a great job with creepy imagery. I wish the ending was a little different but I appreciated the journey. The characters were well written and aside from some of their actions not always making sense. Off to watch the 1981 movie based on the book. Wish me luck !

Pure garbage

This was the ramblings of a drunk lunatic. Don’t waste your time, just go talk to an insane person for a couple hours instead.

I was utterly captivated

It has been so long since I lost myself in a book.
