From a Buick 8

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Come close, children, and see the living crocodile. A vintage '54 Buick Roadmaster. At least, that's what it looks like . . .

There is a secret hidden in Shed B in the state police barracks in Statler, Pennsylvania. A secret that has drawn troopers for twenty years - terrified yet irresistibly tempted to look at its chrome fenders, silver grille and exotic exhaust system.

Young Ned Wilcox has started coming by the barracks: mowing the lawn, washing the windows, shovelling snow; it's a boy's way of holding on to his father - recently killed in a strange road accident by another Buick.

And one day Ned peers through the windows of Shed B and discovers the family secret. Like his father, Ned wants answers. He deserves answers. And the secret begins to stir . . .

Customer Reviews

Weird, creepy & great

Fantastic story with a really unusual premise. Credit to SK for coming up with the idea of the Buick 8 - it's so intriguing.

From a Buick 8 - Stephen King

It's a good book with a well written plot but I have to say, not one of his best. The main story line takes a while to kick in and it does go off on a tangent in some parts, but other then that an enjoyable read.

Smelly feet

I once came across a person who removed their socks and we smelt cheese.
