This is the first in a four-part audio series of King's classic FOUR PAST MIDNIGHT. The story of 11 passengers headed from L.A. to Boston on the flight from hell is a rousing thriller. When the crew and most of the passengers on the plane disappear mid-flight, those left (including an off-duty airline pilot) decide to land in Bangor, Maine. Of course, that’s smack dab in the middle of “King country,” so things go further downhill from there, making for lots of suspense. Narrated by renowned actor Willem Dafoe, the story is brought to life in a stirring performance that offers layered characters and a climax wrought with tension. Dafoe is a pro, reading with the confidence and consistency of the best narrators. With a voice so gritty, honest, and foreboding, he’s perfect for King's prose.
