In many ways, Edgar Freemantle had no choice but to start a new life. After a major accident had ripped off his arm and grotesquely stretched his sanity, the self-made millionaire had stabbed his wife and squandered his marriage. After relinquishing most of his wealth to his ex and his two daughters, he moves to Duma Key, a seemingly idyllic stretch on the Florida coast. There, with a paintbrush and an empty life canvas, he hopes to make a new beginning. But in Stephen King novels, opening any door can be perilous. A major psychological thriller from the master of scream.

Wrap Pet Sematary in a Bag of Bones and you'll have Duma Key. Revenants, creepy dolls, paintings that fix the broken, and enough tragedy to fill a swimming pool with tears is what you'll find within these pages. The scene at the end with [name deleted because spoilers] is one of the creepiest heart-...
