A Stephen King hit. The events already happened. The main character, Linsey, tells the story as a flashback. It centers around her life with her very well known dead author husband Scott. Linsey also has 3 sisters, each having their own unique personality.
What is reality really? How do you know if other realities exist. Maybe some people can go to the another reality. Can anyone actually handle two different realities and stay sane?
Steven King is takes the reader to Castlerock, Maine. Scott is dead. Linsey is left to sort through his office at the same time dealing with her sisters varying personalities. So many people are interested in Scott’s work. Some crazy people. Much of this book is about the skeletons in Scott’s closet. Very horrible skeletons.
I listened to the Audible version read by Mare Winningham. This was so well done I was trying to stay awake at night to keep going. A page turner I guess you could say. What an awesome experience this one was.

Everyone knows each other’s business but someone has secrets. This falls on Detective Radhauser’s to solve. It gets personal too. Jeopardizing everything he values more than his own life.
The characters are all well developed. Everyone’s lives seem to somehow be weaved together in this country town. It gets very complicated. I couldn’t put this book down.
Within these books is an amazing story. There are short lulls which are unavoidable when telling such a long story. I will never forget this story. All time best ending.

Jude Fontaine is at the center of this very suspenseful thriller. Jude is a sister, daughter, victim, tenant and partner. A resilient and resourceful person who never gives up. The odds are use usually against Jude. She just keeps going. Girls disappear. Bodies show up. Jude herself is abducted and assumed dead like so many others. Jude is the only person capable of ending this purely because of who she is.
The narration is captivating. It felt like listening to a TV series since the characters voices were so incredibly distinct. The narrator added suspense to this already intense story with her delivery. I loved this Audible.
