It is the evil heart of a battered and reeling Empire: Coruscant, the giant city-world from whose massive towers the Imperial High Command directs the war. The Rebels will invade this mighty citadel in a daring move to bring the Empire to its knees. But first Wedge Antilles and his X-wing pilots must infiltrate Coruscant to gain vital intelligence information. Capture means death or, worse, enslavement by the vicious leader known as "Iceheart": Ysanne Isard, now Emperor in all but name.

Since his wife died, Ralph Roberts has been having trouble sleeping. Each night he wakes up a bit earlier until he's barely sleeping at all. During his late-night walks, he observes some strange things going on in Derry, Maine. He sees colored ribbons streaming from people's heads, two strange little men wandering around town after dark, and more. He begins to suspect that these visions are something more than hallucinations brought on by lack of sleep.

This is a great book and a great performance by the narrator.. I had to leave a star off the overall rating because after or during moment of suspense or revelation there is what I guess is supposed to be an eerie bit of music.. Most of King's audio books include this and I think it does add something to the story, but in this case the music was startlingly loud, almost painful.. It gets to the point where it's more annoying than anything, and difficult to hear the narrator through..
