Publisher Comments:

Ten years ago, Stephen King published Bag of Bones , a number one bestse ller, a tale of grie f, of love's enduring bonds, and the haunting secrets of the past .

Four years after the sudden death of his wife, forty-year-old bestselling novelist Mike Noonan is unable to write and plagued by vivid nightmares set at the Maine summerhouse he calls Sara Laughs. Mike reluctantly returns to the lakeside getaway and finds his beloved Yankee town held in the grip of a vindictive millionaire, Max Devore, who is trying to take his three-year-old granddaughter away from her widowed young mother, Mattie. As Mike is drawn into Mattie's struggle — and begins to fall in love with her — he is also drawn into the mystery of Sara Laughs, now the site of ghostly visitations and escalating terrors. What do the forces that have been unleashed here want of Mike Noonan?

STEPHEN KINGS POWERFUL TALE OF LOST LOVES ENDURING BONDS AND HAUNTING SECRETS FROM THE PAST. . . .

Four years after the sudden death of his wife, bestselling novelist Mike Noonan is still grieving, unable to write, and plagued by vivid nightmares set at Sara Laughs, the Maine summerhouse that seems to be calling to him. Reluctantly returning to the lakeside getaway, Mike finds a small town in the soulless grip of a powerful millionaire, a single mother fighting to keep her three-year-old daughter, and a miasma of ghostly visitations and escalating terrors at his remote cabin. Drawn to Matties dilemma and falling in love with her and with young Kyra, Mike must still face the terrifying forces that have been unleashed at the lakes edge—what do they want with Mike Noonan?

This is one of King's spookier books, I loved every page of this one. The whole thing had me on the edge of my seat freaked out! Be sure to have the lights on with this one and be prepared to have the hallway lights on at night!
