The company appeals to the Mississippi Supreme Court, whose nine justices will one day either approve the verdict—or reverse it. The chemical company is owned by a Wall Street predator named Carl Trudeau, and Mr. Trudeau is convinced the Court is not friendly enough to his interests. With judicial elections looming, he decides to try to purchase himself a seat on the Court. The cost is a few million dollars, a drop in the bucket for a billionaire like Mr. Trudeau. Through an intricate web of conspiracy and deceit, his political operatives recruit a young, unsuspecting candidate. They finance him, manipulate him, market him, and mold him into a potential Supreme Court justice. Their Supreme Court justice. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham's The Litigators.

The acclaimed #1 New York Times and internationally bestselling horror novel from the undisputed King of Horror, Stephen King’s Black House is now reprinted for a modern-day audience. Twenty years ago, a boy named Jack Sawyer traveled to a parallel universe called the Territories to save his mother and her Territories “Twinner” from an agonizing death that would have brought cataclysm to the other world. Now Jack is a retired Los Angeles homicide detective living in the nearly nonexistent hamlet of Tamarack, Wisconsin. He has no recollection of his adventures in the Territories, and was compelled to leave the police force when an odd, happenstance event threatened to awaken those memories. When a series of gruesome murders occur in western Wisconsin that are reminiscent of those committed several decades ago by a madman named Albert Fish, the killer is dubbed “the Fishman,” and Jack’s buddy, the local chief of police, begs Jack to help the inexperienced force find him. But are these new killings merely the work of a disturbed individual, or has a mysterious and malignant force been unleashed in this quiet town? What causes Jack’s inexplicable waking dreams—if that is what they are—of robins’ eggs and red feathers? It’s almost as if someone is trying to tell him something. As this cryptic message becomes increasingly impossible to ignore, Jack is drawn back to the Territories and to his own hidden past, where he may find the soul-strength to enter a terrifying house at the end of a deserted tract of forest, there to encounter the obscene and ferocious evils sheltered within it.

At 6’7” and built like a bear, Clay Blaisdell is one big mother, but his capers are strictly small-time until he meets George Rackley. George introduces him to a hundred cons and the one big score that every small timer dreams of: kidnap. The Gerards are filthy rich, and their child, the last twig on the family tree, could be worth millions. And after all a baby can’t ID you, so you can return it alive. There’s only one problem: when the time comes for the deal to go down, George, the brains of the partnership, has died. Or has he? Now Blaze is running into the teeth of a howling storm and the cops are closing in. He’s got a baby as a hostage, and the Crime of the Century just turned into a race against time in the white hell of the Maine woods. Lost for years amongst Stephen King’s papers, and published for the first time ever in 2007, Blaze is a heartstopping thriller reminiscent of Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men with the power of a noir fable.

Many readers know Stephen King for his early works of horror, from his fiction debut Carrie to his blockbuster novels The Shining, The Stand, and Misery, among others. While he continues to be a best-selling author, King’s more recent fiction has not received the kind of critical attention that his books from the 1970s and 1980s enjoyed. Recent novels like Duma Key and 1/22/63 have been marginalized and, arguably, cast aside as anomalies within the author’s extensive canon. In Stephen King’s Contemporary Classics: Reflections on the Modern Master of Horror, Philip L. Simpson and Patrick McAleer present a collection of essays that analyze, assess, and critique King’s post-1995 compositions. Purposefully side-stepping studies of earlier work, these essays are arranged into three main parts: the first section examines five King novels published between 2009 and 2013, offering genuinely fresh scholarship on King; the second part looks at the development of King’s distinct brand of horror; the third section departs from probing the content of King’s writing and instead focuses on King’s process. By concentrating on King’s most recent writings, this collection offers provocative insights into the author’s work, featuring essays on Dr. Sleep, Duma Key, The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, Joyland, Under the Dome, and others. As such, Stephen King’s Contemporary Classics will appeal to general fans of the author’s work as well as scholars of Stephen King and modern literature.

Edgar Freemantle joutuu onnettomuuteen ja käy lähellä kuolemaa. Mutta edessä on painajaisista pahin - Duma Key Rakennusurakoitsija Edgar Freemantle selviytyy nipin napin hengissä vakavasta työtapaturmasta. Hän menettää oikean kätensä, ja lisäksi puhe, näkö ja muisti takkuilevat. Hän kärsii myös voimakkaista kivuista ja ailahtelevista mielialoista. Raivopäissään Edgar on hyökännyt kaksi kertaa jopa vaimonsa kimppuun. Nyt vaimo haluaa erota. Psykologinsa neuvosta Edgar ottaa maantieteellistä etäisyyttä tapahtumiin. Hän muuttaa Minnesotasta Floridan rannikolle ja vuokraa vaaleanpunaisen rantatalon Duma Keyn saarelta. Hän ryhtyy piirtämään ja maalaamaan, ja vaikuttaa melkein siltä kuin hänestä pursuava luovuus ja lahjakkuus tulisivat jostain ulkopuolelta. Pian Edgar huomaa, että hänen kuumeisesti maalaamansa työt vaikuttavat arvaamattoman voimakkaasti saaren elämään. Vähitellen alkaa paljastua talon omistajan Elizabeth Eastlaken traaginen perhetarina, ja menneisyyden haamut tuhoisine voimineen nousevat esiin. Kingin uuden romaanin aineksia ovat kuoleman kohtaaminen, muistot, luovuus, pahuus. Pelottava ja yliluonnollinen Tapahtumapaikkana Duma Key pitää tiukasti pihdeissään.
