Mile 81 meets “N.” in this collaboration between Stephen King and Joe Hill.As USA TODAY said of Stephen King’s Mile 81: “Park and scream. Could there be any better place to set a horror story than an abandoned rest stop?” In the Tall Grass begins with a sister and brother who pull off to the side of the road after hearing a young boy crying for help from beyond the tall grass.

(Note: This is an old review that I'm adding to my Booklikes account. Not sure if I feel the same why now as I did when I first reviewed it, but this gives me a point of reference should I choose to revisit it.) "In the Tall Grass" is one of the more disturbing tales I've read. This is the first ...
Warning: it's shocking. This very short story, about a brother and sister who remind me of The Carpenters, drew me in. It's a good read. Recommended for fans of horror and the weird type of fiction that King does sometimes.
