An 11-year-old boy's violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City's most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.
As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, King's propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face? When the answer comes, it will shock you as only Stephen King can.

Just not that compelling - should be abridged.
Was hoping for a gripping story - didn't care if it fit any of S K's past stories or styles. Very disappointed with the very long, drawn out story line. The key mystical influence of the plot line really took a very long time to come out and was kind of wishy washy and not very compelling. Perhaps more plausible than some SK spooks and mad men, but just not all that compelling to me. I really got bored.
