Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Slattery

Mystery & Suspense • 21.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Renowned horror and dark fiction writer Stephen King returns with his latest thriller, his best story in nearly fifteen years. Narrator John Slattery commands his audience like a seasoned professional, his solid delivery perfectly suited for King’s tense writing style. Slattery assumes the persona of Edgar Freemantle, a downtrodden artist who takes to a deserted beach in Florida after losing his arm in a freak accident in Minneapolis. Offering a wide range of complicated emotions, Slattery’s performance solidifies him as one of the best narrators in recent memory. His delivery is so believable it’s scary—to the point that the audience may feel ashamed for listening in to this man’s personal memoir during his time of need. L.B.
