Synopsis

From the master of the long story form, the Sunday Times No. 1 besteller, Full Dark, No Stars - described by the Sunday Telegraph as 'an extraordinary collection, thrillingly merciless, and a career high point' - now with a stunning new cover look.Is it possible to fully know anyone? Even those we love the most? What tips someone over the edge to commit a crime?In '1922', a story which was adapted into a Netflix original film, a Nebraska farmer, the turning point comes when his wife threatens to sell off the family homestead.In 'Big Driver', a cozy mystery writer plots a savage revenge after a brutal encounter with a stranger.In 'Fair Extension', Dave Streeter gets the chance to cure himself from illness - if he agrees to impose misery on an old rival.In 'A Good Marriage', Darcy Anderson discovers a box containing her husband's dark and terrifying secrets - he's not the man who keeps his nails short and collects coins. And now he's heading home . . .And readers have a treat in store, with a bonus story, 'Under the Weather'.Like DIFFERENT SEASONS and FOUR PAST MIDNIGHT, which generated such enduring hit films as The Shawshank Redemption and Stand by Me, FULL DARK, NO STARS proves Stephen King a master of the long story form.
