King is a very remarkable and singular writer. He can catch dialogue, throw away an observation or mint a simile, sometimes, brilliantly . . . Storytelling is everything - and by golly does he know how to carry the reader. Observer

A hugely anticipated novel, this is the sequel to King's iconic "The Shining". Dan Torrence is now middle-aged and working at a hospice in rural New Hampshire. Meanwhile, a tribe of murderous paranormal people called The True Knot travel across America, living on the 'steam' that children with the 'shining' produce when they're tortured to death. Although a sequel, it can be read as a stand alone novel. 'The most remarkable storyteller in modern American literature.' Mark Lawson, "Guardian"
STEPHEN KING returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining.
