Evil has many faces…maybe even yours in this #1 New York Times bestseller from master storyteller Stephen King.

“Do yourself a favor and read the book.”

—Associated Press

“An It for the Trump era…remarkable and deeply pleasurable.”

—Ryan Vlastelica, The AV Club

“Here’s to mutant rats in the basement and Mexican myths; here’s to the strange and to Stephen King. Still inspiring.”

—Victor LaValle, New York Times Book Review

“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

 

Description

An eleven-year-old boy’s violated corpse is discovered in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens—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 have DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

As the investigation expands and horrifying details begin to emerge, King’s 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.
