    No one but Stephen King could tell this story about the darkness at the heart of the unknown and our compulsion to investigate the unexplained. With echoes of Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon and the work of Graham Greene, one of the world's great storytellers presents a surprising tale that explores the nature of mystery itself.

    Overall

    You,ve got the latest Stephen King in hand and you're ready for something strange and wonderful. A tale that is more than what it appears, and then again, not, posessing that something that unsettles then slyly reassembles in a somehow different way. Isn't it just like King to give us just that? And isn't it just like Your Strangeness (affectionately) to deliver a "fooled you, didn't I?" I wasn't expecting a supernatural-free yarn, that hints at The Unknown but never really goes there. It is not often that King steers clear of otherworldly matters and becomes the storyteller of old. Although I think he handled the task much better in "The Body" and my personal favorite, "Shawshank Redemption"... as someone once said everyone loves a mystery; and I indeed enjoyed this one. We are presented with an inexplicable death (or was it a murder?), while being introduced to three "sweet" and interesting journalist on a small island newspaper. I missed the depth of characterization seen in most of King's work, but I liked them all the same, and added them to the list of people I know in Maine but haven't yet met. Mystery fans will enjoy this one, especially if like me, you like to don the cap with the puppy ears tied atop while proclaiming that "the game is afoot".
