Master storyteller Stephen King presents the classic “terrifying…gripping” (Miami Herald) #1 New York Times bestseller—“his highest farenheit reading yet (Time)!"Get out. Get out quickly. She's never done anything like this before and I don't know if she can stop." Andy McGee and Vicky Tomlinson were once college students looking to make some extra cash, volunteering as test subjects for an experiment orchestrated by the clandestine government organization known as The Shop.
