Description

A STUNNING  NEW NOVEL FROM ONE OF THE BEST-SELLING AUTHORS OF ALL TIME!

The #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever.

"I love crime, I love mysteries, and I love ghosts. That combo made Hard Case Crime the perfect venue for this book, which is one of my favorites. I also loved the paperbacks I grew up with as a kid, and for that reason, we’re going to hold off on e-publishing this one for the time being. Joyland will be coming out in paperback, and folks who want to read it will have to buy the actual book." –Stephen King

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 08, 2013 – A haunted carnival funhouse gives a supernatural spin to events in Thriller Award winner King s period murder mystery with a heart. In the summer of 1973, 21-year-old college student Devin Jones takes a job at Joyland, a North Carolina amusement park. Almost immediately, a boardwalk fortune-teller warns that Devin has a shadow over him, and that his destiny is intertwined with that of terminally ill Mike Ross, a 10-year-old boy who has the sight. Shortly after Devin meets Mike, Mike makes a cryptic comment: It s not white. This proves a vital clue when Devin begins investigating an unsolved murder committed four years before at the carnival s Horror House, and quickly stumbles into more than he bargained for. King (The Colorado Kid) brings his usual finesse to this tale s mystery elements, and makes Dev s handling of them crucial to the novel s bigger coming-of-age story, in which Dev adapts to the carny life and finds true romance.

Customer Reviews

Stephen King does it again

I just loved this story! Not his scariest but like The Stand, which is one of my favorites, his characters and story line made me wish for more. He is turning into a softie and I love it.

Must Read

This is a must read! Loved this book.

Carnival Murder Mystery

This is great for someone wanting a little spooky without actual horror. It's a murder mystery and sort of a coming of age tale. I got into it. It has that eerie feeling like something is coming throughout and is pretty good storytelling in my opinion, kind of feels like a longer version of camp side ghost story.
