Black House

Stephen King and Peter Straub: Black House (USA 2012)

From the Publisher:
The bestselling collaboration between #1 bestselling author Stephen King and Peter Straub -- an epic thriller about a small American town held in the grip of unspeakable evil -- and the spectacular follow-up to The Talisman.

Twenty years ago, a boy named Jack Sawyer traveled to a parallel universe called the Territories to save his mother and her "Twinner" from an agonizing death that would have brought cataclysm to the other world. Now Jack is a retired Los Angeles homicide detective living in the nearly nonexistent hamlet of Tamarack, Wisconsin. He has no recollection of his adventures in the Territories, and he was compelled to leave the police force when an odd, happenstance event threatened to awaken those memories.

When a series of gruesome murders occur in western Wisconsin that are reminiscent of those committed several decades earlier, Jack's buddy, the local chief of police, begs Jack to help find him. But are these new killings merely the work of a disturbed individual, or has a mysterious and malignant force been unleashed in this quiet town? What causes Jack's inexplicable waking dreams -- if that is what they are -- of robins' eggs and red feathers? It's almost as if someone is trying to tell him something. As this cryptic message becomes increasingly impossible to ignore, Jack is drawn back to the Territories and to his own hidden past, where he may find the strength to enter a terrifying house at the end of a deserted tract of forest -- only to encounter the obscene and ferocious evils sheltered within it.

Stephen King and Peter Straub: Black House. A Novel. Pocket Books, ISBN: 9781451697735 (November, 2012), 780 p., $9.99.

Black House

Stephen King and Peter Straub: Black House (UK 2009)

From the Publisher:
Two of the greatest storytellers of our time join forces to create an epic thriller of unsurpassed power; a twisting, compelling story of a small American town held in the grip of evil beyond all reason.

French Landing, Wisconsin. A comfortable, solid middle-American town inhabited by comfortable, solid middle-Americans - and a serial killer.

Three children have been lost - taken by a monster with a taste for child's flesh nicknamed 'The Fisherman' after a legendary murderer. It's all way beyond the experience of the local police, whose only hope lies with ex-detective Jack Sawyer, the man who cracked their last case for them. But, plagued by visions of another world, Jack has retired to this rural retreat precisely to avoid such horrors - and, having recognized the touch of madness on this case, he's keeping well away.

Soon, he'll have no choice. Young Tyler Marshall, left behind one afternoon by his bullying friends, pedals past the local old folks' home and is accosted by a crow. 'Gorg,' it caws, and 'Ty.' What ten-year-old could resist a bird that speaks his name? Not Ty, that's for sure. And as he follows the mysterious crow, he's grabbed by the neck and dragged into a hedge.

The Fisherman has made another catch...

Stephen King and Peter Straub: Black House. HarperCollins, ISBN: 9780007100446 (April, 2009), 819 S., £8.99.
