This box set features three bestselling works from internationally famous horror author, Stephen King. The undisputed King of Horror delivers in these three spine-tingling books that are sure to keep you up at night. Lisey’s Story is the story of a writer’s widow who must confront his demons after his death. Two years ago, Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, an award-winning, bestselling novelist and a very complicated man. Lisey knew there was a place Scott went—a place that both terrified and healed him, that could eat him alive or give him the ideas he needed in order to live. Now it’s Lisey’s turn to face Scott’s demons, Lisey’s turn to go to Boo’ya Moon. What begins as a widow’s effort to sort through the papers of her celebrated husband becomes a nearly fatal journey into the darkness he inhabited. Perhaps King’s most personal and powerful novel, Lisey’s Story is about the wellsprings of creativity, the temptations of madness, and the secret language of love. Featuring fourteen horrific short stories, Everything’s Eventual is King in terrifying top form with stories that will keep you awake until daybreak. King takes readers down a road less traveled (for good reason) in the blockbuster ebook “Riding the Bullet.” Bad table service turns bloody when you stop in for “Lunch at the Gotham Café,” and terror becomes déjà vu all over again when you get “That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is in French.” Enter a nightmarish mindscape of unrelenting horror and shocking revelations that could only come from the imagination of the greatest storyteller of our time. Buckle your seatbelts for Mr. Mercedes. In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, 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, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. In this high-suspense race against time, three of the most unlikely heroes Stephen King has ever created try to stop a lone killer from blowing up thousands. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.
