Publisher's Summary

Auf Amerikas Highways ist eine mörderische Sekte unterwegs. Sie hat es auf Kinder abgesehen, die das Shining haben. Stephen King kehrt zu den Figuren und Szenerien eines seiner berühmtesten Romane zurück: Der Dreirad fahrende kleine Danny, der im Hotel Overlook so unter seinem besessenen Vater hat leiden müssen, ist erwachsen geworden. Aber die Vergangenheit lässt ihn nicht los, und wieder gerät er in einen Kampf zwischen Gut und Böse. Die zwölfjährige Abra hat das Shining. Kann er sie retten?

Nur mühevoll kann Dan Torrance die Schrecken verarbeiten, die er als kleines Kind im Hotel Overlook erlitten hat. Obendrein hat er die Suchtkrankheit seines besessenen Vaters geerbt und nimmt daher fleißig an Treffen der Anonymen Alkoholiker teil. Seine paranormalen Fähigkeiten - das Shining - setzt er nun in seinem Beruf ein: In einem Hospiz spendet er Sterbenden in ihren letzten Stunden Trost. Man nennt ihn liebevoll Doctor Sleep. Währenddessen ist in ganz Amerika eine Sekte auf der Suche nach ihrem Lebenselixier unterwegs. Ihre Mitglieder sehen so unscheinbar aus wie der landläufige Tourist - Ruheständler in Polyesterkleidung, die in ihr Wohnmobil vernarrt sind. Aber sie sind nahezu unsterblich, wenn sie sich vom letzten Lebenshauch jener Menschen ernähren, die das Shining besitzen. Das Mädchen Abra Stone besitzt es im Übermaß und gerät ins Visier der mörderischen Sekte. Um sie zu retten, weckt Dan die tief in ihm schlummernden Dämonen und ruft sie in einen alles entscheidenden Kampf.

Who doesn't like Stephen King

This was a great sequel to the Shining. Will Patton did an excellent job in the narration.
Everyone has a bit of the Shining

Probably my fault but why would amazon recommend a Book in German to me? I’m a stupid American who just said, “Yeah, I want that!”
