    Combe Island off the Cornish coast has a bloodstained history of piracy and cruelty but now, privately owned, it offers respite to over-stressed men and women in positions of high authority who require privacy and guaranteed security. But the peace of Combe is violated when one of the distinguished visitors is bizarrely murdered.

    Overall

    P.D. James has one of the most beautiful prose styles of any mystery writer I have read. Her descriptions of people, landscapes and situations always amaze me. Her psychological profiles offer to explain the deep, dark purposes of cold-hearted murderers. I really had a difficult time determining who actually did the nasty deed. But as beautiful as her writing is, the book seemed to drag on just a bit too long.

    Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a 25-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, best-selling novelist, and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and "bools". Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went, a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive, or give him the ideas he needed in order to live.

    Overall

    We have come to believe that Stephen King is solely a horror writer, an artist who steeps himself in the darkest, most twisted places of the mind. Lisey's Story is a love story, and King does a marvelous job of explaining a very complicated relationship. It was not syrupy or maudlin. Just true. Whether it was autobiographical or not is unimportant. To strip these characters of all pretense was. He does a masterful job of portraying a very real love story. I was mesmerized and moved by the characters. Kudos to King.
