Publisher's Summary

For 20 years the officers in the Pennsylvania State Police Barracks have kept a secret in Shed B: a vintage Buick which lures the troopers to come and take a look. Young Ned Wilcox, son of the recently deceased officer Curt, has started hanging around the barracks. One day he can't resist peeking through the windows. And it's time to share the secret. The veteran troopers sit Ned down on the smoking bench and tell him every skin-curdling detail - from the Buick's arrival to the terrifying light-shows and what it sucks in and breathes out. For the Buick is a conduit to another world. As King puts it, 'when we confront the deep and authentic unknown, we glimpse that place where our familiar universe stops.'

    "Enjoyed From a Buick 8 Muchly"

    This was an interesting listen, I wasn't sure which way it was going to go at all and the result was very pleasing. I enjoyed the different performances too, having different narrators for different characters added to the experience. It also made me reflect on the role of cops in the States and the note that policing situations can be very much more life and death than in here in the UK where guns aren't carried as commonly by cops or crims... Tricksey in any country, but a bit more stressful when guns are involved?

    "I hate thinking up review titles"

    I really enjoyed this, I enjoyed the characters and their relationships the most to be honest. The car was kinda scary but tbh it felt like it couldn't go anywhere... It did progress, there was a nasty ending and it was better than I thought it could be. So good all round.
