Bestselling authors Stephen King and Peter Straub's epic thriller about a small American town held in the grip of unspeakable evil is now available from Simon & Schuster Audio - completely unabridged on MP3 CD-for only $19.99! 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 a happenstance event threatened to awaken those long suppressed and dangerous 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 the killer. 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? As these cryptic messages becomes impossible to ignore, Jack is drawn back to the Territories and to his own hidden past.



  • I'm a huge Stephen King and Frank Muller fan, and let me tell you, this story is absolutely amazing. If you're a fan of The Dark Tower series, then you definitely need to get your hands on this book. If all the books on this service were as good as this one, I'd seriously consider ditching my TV. The job they did on this book is just fantastic!
  • Peter Straub consistently delivers a satisfying conclusion, although he tends to drag on with excessive and mundane travel descriptions that can be a bit dull. Stephen King has somewhat moderated this tendency in "Black House," but in the opening chapter, you're bombarded with meticulous accounts of the various businesses on the main street of the city, none of which play a significant role in the rest of the story. However, the flow of "Black House" is smooth, the characters are well-developed, and some will definitely win your affection while others will invoke disdain. The book has moments of intense suspense and heartache, and the ending will undoubtedly leave you craving more.
  • I tried reading "Desperation" before, but the slow-paced writing and superficial portrayal of characters made it difficult to continue. Unfortunately, "Black House" starts off in a similar manner for the first couple of hours. Once the story delves into the characters' backgrounds, it becomes confusing to differentiate between them because one character speaks on behalf of others. As a fan of Stephen King and someone who greatly admires Peter Straub, I have to admit that this book just doesn't resonate with me.
  • Just like in his previous works, King brings back old storylines in 'Black House', but it can feel repetitive and lacking in creativity. The start is interesting and captivating, but then he revisits familiar ground and it becomes a bit mundane. It's one of those cases where it feels like we've already experienced it before.
