Mystery & Suspense • 2.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

King's novella focuses on a woman named Em, who retreats to the sunny beaches of Florida to escape the tragedies of her former life. Narrator Mare Winningham relates the story with honesty and sincerity, capturing the melancholy and sadness that abounds in Em's mind. Her gripping delivery is the stuff that great performances are made of. Winningham brings the protagonist to life while still managing to capture the strong sense of foreboding that so often permeates King's tales. Similar in many aspects to King's recent novel, DUMA KEY, this story relates the inner workings of the human mind in such a way as to make the horror a very personal matter. The result is a captivating experience sure to ignite the senses of the listener. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
