A rich and disturbing novel from Stephen King. Spanning five decades it builds to the most terrifying conclusion he has ever written. A dark and electrifying novel about addiction, fanaticism and what might exist on the other side of life, this looks set to be a masterpiece in the great American tradition of Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allan Poe.
