Description

When Edgar Freemantle moves to Duma Key to escape his past, he doesn't expect to find much there. But Duma Key and its mysteries have been waiting for him.

From Publishers Weekly

10 December 2007 – In bestseller King s well-crafted tale of possession and redemption, Edgar Freemantle, a successful Minnesota contractor, barely survives after the Dodge Ram he s driving collides with a 12-story crane on a job site. While Freemantle suffers the loss of an arm and a fractured skull, among other serious injuries, he makes impressive gains in rehabilitation. Personality changes that include uncontrollable rages, however, hasten the end of his 20-year-plus marriage. On his psychiatrist s advice, Freemantle decides to start anew on a remote island in the Florida Keys. To his astonishment, he becomes consumed with making art first pencil sketches, then paintings that soon earns him a devoted following. Freemantle s artwork has the power both to destroy life and to cure ailments, but soon the Lovecraftian menace that haunts Duma Key begins to assert itself and torment those dear to him. The transition from the initial psychological suspense to the supernatural may disappoint some, but even those few who haven t read King (Lisey s Story) should appreciate his ability to create fully realized characters and conjure horrors that are purely manmade.

Customer Reviews

Heat and chills

A novel more in the style of his Rose Madder phase. Does more for Florida than the Florida Tourist Board. Great setting, well drawn characters and tense ending makes for a great Summer read. Enjoy.

My favourite Stephen King book

This is still my favourite book from Stephen King. Wonderful atmospheres into which you are immersed. Beautiful, dark and mysterious.

Brilliant book

Great book, so descriptive. The ending let me down though. It built up for such a scary ending but it made me realise it's almost impossible to portray that through writing. The fact that I still gave 4 stars shows how good the book was though.
