here is a reason why Stephen King is one of the bestselling writers in the world, ever. Described by Robert McCrum in the Observer as 'a sophisticated literary craftsman' whose 'work anatomises, with folksy charm, the social fabric of small town American life', Stephen King knows how to write stories that draw you in and are impossible to put down.
When Mike Noonan's wife dies unexpectedly, the bestselling author suffers from writer's block. Until he is drawn to his summer home, the beautiful lakeside retreat called Sara Laughs. Here, Mike finds the once familiar town in the tyrannical grip of millionaire Max Devore. Devore is hellbent on getting custody of his deceased son's daughter and is twisting the fabric of the community to this purpose.
Three-year-old Kyra and her young mother turn to Mike for help. And Mike finds them increasingly irresistible.
But there are other more sinister forces at Sara Laughs. Kyra can feel them too...
