The master of horror serves up plenty of surprises in this new collection of four novellas.

The first, 1922, is the most gripping of the lot. Wilfred Leland James, a farmer in Nebraska, murders his wife with the help of his 14-year-old son and dumps her body in a rat-infested well. The consequences are far-reaching and monstrous.

In Big Driver mystery writer Tess is brutally attacked when she takes a shortcut driving home. She swears to get even – and does!

Fair Extension revolves around a cancer patient who makes a deal with a mysterious Mr Elvid for a life extension and discovers there’s a heavy price to pay.

In A Good Marriage Darcy Anderson realises her husband of 20 years isn’t such a good guy when she finds a box in their garage.

As the title suggests the tales are dark and twisted. King fans will love them.
