Author(s): Stephen King
In a mega-stakes, high-suspense race against time, three of the most unlikely and winning heroes Stephen King has ever created try to stop a lone killer from blowing up thousands.
In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, backs up, and charges again. Eight are killed; fifteen wounded. The killer escapes. Months later, retired cop Bill Hodges gets a letter threatening an even more diabolical attack, and is hell-bent on preventing another tragedy.
