Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER—soon to be an HBO limited series starring Ben Mendelsohn!

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.

King still has it!

Awesome book reminiscent of older works yet wonderfully intertwined with his newer books! I read this book every free moment I’ve had over the past week! The twists and turns are Mr. King at his best. I absolutely loved this book!

He’s Done It Yet Again

I’ve been a Stephen King fan since I was a kid growing up in the 90s. His books stir a guttural reaction from me unlike any other. This book is no exception. His carefully crafted plot lines, interwoven with the internal struggles of each character, has you invested and on the edge of your seat from the grisly start to the power packed ending. If you’re like me and try to piece together clues and minor details left by King as a sordid scavenger hunt of sorts.....then this is the book for you! Full of dread, parallels to today’s world and amazing characters and dialogue you can’t help but get invested in. Sad I finished it!
