Clever, very clever. This book reminded me a lot of Bradbury and "Something Wicked This Way Comes." It's got a great and electrifying "villain" that will haunt you way after you finish this book. Jamie Morton recounts five decades of his life and regales readers with the story of his fifth business, the ever evolving Reverend Charles Jacobs. The Rev makes appearances throughout Jamie's life and while some good has come of it, Jamie feels the shadow creeping over him. Stephen King builds up the suspense and. as always, has a terrifying conclusion. While it's not scary all the way through it can be quite chilling. This is a story of debts owed, life on the other side, addiction, and fanaticism. A must read for any Stephen King fan!
