An 11-year-old boy's violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City's most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

I really have not listened to Mr. King since Lisey's Story which I loved. You have definitely outdone yourself this time.

Tiffany can't avoid being funny: it's just who she is. But The Last Black Unicorn is so much more than a side-splittingly hilarious collection of essays - it's a memoir of the struggles of one woman who came from nothing and nowhere. A woman who was able to achieve her dreams by reveling in her pain and awkwardness, showing the world who she really is, and inspiring others through the power of laughter.

Ms. Haddish,

The first time I ever heard of you was in girls trip and honestly if it wasn't for your "every day girl around the way" attitude the movie would not have been successful. This book had my crying laughing, sad, and mad with the dumb shit you put up with. In the end, you taught me one simple enormous lesson... Don't let anyone steal your joy!

Five weeks later, the authorities who rescue the survivors encounter a scene of horror. Photos soon emerge online of heads on spikes outside of rides and viscera and human bones littering the gift shops, breaking records for hits, views, likes, clicks, and shares.

In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep: They become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place.... The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease.

This book was a clear reflection of the differences between men and women. How each side struggles to maintain a sense of self but who coincidencely lost themselves along the way.

This has to be hands down the best who done it thriller I have ever had the pleasure to read or listen too. It was devastatingly dark, yet compelling all in the same breath. I highly recommend this for anyone looking for redemption, fear, cruelty, and the strongest female character I have seen. You will be happy, pissed, shocked, horrified, and of course heartbroken.
