Publisher's Summary

Consummate master of his craft, Stephen King has kept millions awake past midnight shivering at tales that probe the shadows and reveal the dark side. Now listeners can chill to this second dramatic unabridged production of short stories from his best selling book, Night Shift. It brings Stephen King's demonic stories fully to life - and the terror even closer to home. Dropout drifter Hall has crossed the country doing whatever comes his way. Working the "Graveyard Shift" in a decaying Massachusetts mill under a bullying foreman is just one more leg in his crazy quilt journey, until it leads to a nether realm where the Rat Queen defends her empire. Things are never as they seem, as "The Man Who Loved Flowers" proves one perfect Spring evening on the sidewalks of New York. In "The Last Rung on the Ladder" beautiful Kitty hangs from dizzying heights above a hideous fate and, in "Night Surf," a group of teenagers on a late summer beach watch the world end in a gruesome, viral whimper. The mind-numbing secrets of "Jerusalem's Lot" wait in an ancestral mansion where blood binds the Boone family to a timeless history of unspeakable evil.

Overall good investment

The narrator was very good. Narrator did the best on The Man Who Loved Flowers and Jerusalem's Lot. Stories are classic Stephen King. If you're a King fan you won't be dissappointed!

Best of the 'lot

While the dissecting of Night Shift into three parts appears to be a shameless grab for money, this volume is a bargain and a half. Some of the best of King's short fiction collection is here - the brutal and ravaging "Graveyard Shift" and utterly chilling "Jerusalem's Lot" - among less horrifying but equally well-told tales like "The Last Rung on the Ladder" and "Night Surf". Courtesy of John Glover, who lends a multi-textured performance across all of the stories contained in this selection, the listener can truly hear the beginnings of the masterful writing that would go on to create masterpiece novels like "The Stand" and "'Salem's Lot". When "The Man Who Loved Flowers" is the least terrifying of the bunch (and don't let the name or that description fool you), you know you're in for a wicked treat as only King can deliver.
