Good Read: Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King

Product Description:

“I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger…” writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up “1922,” the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness. Full Dark, No Stars, published in November 2010, is a collection of four novellas by the author Stephen King, all dealing with the theme of retribution.

David Weatherly says:

“Similar in structure to his early collection of novellas ‘Night Shift’, but much much darker. Through four short stories he explores themes of secret depravity and its effect on the soul of all the individuals involved, innocent or not. Not as masterful as ‘Night Shift’, but memorable just the same, and the best thing King has written in quite some time.”
