Nerve-shreddingly brilliant
Daily Express
King is arguably as much an American icon as the '68 Fastback or a classic red and white Plymouth Fury. All of these glories are on full display in his latest mystery-horror hybrid...you're in for one hell of a ride'
Karin Slaughter, The Washington Post
This is one of those books where you find yourself rationing the number of pages you read each night to eke it out. A very good read indeed
