Reviews

Given the locale and overall tone of the book, it would be tempting to regard this as just another Stephen King story, but it isn't. It is a collaboration, and a seamless one at that. Chizmar, whose best short fiction was recently collected in "A Long December," is an excellent writer with a clear affinity for King's brand of storytelling, which includes a clear, idiomatic prose style and a flair for creating instantly recognizable characters. Together, he and King have created what is both a superior addition to the never-quite-finished saga of Castle Rock and a cautionary tale directed toward a world that grows crazier - and more incomprehensible - with every passing day. - Washington Post
