Four chiller novellas set to keep listeners awake long after bedtime.
One Past Midnight: "The Langoliers" takes a red-eye flight from LA to Boston into a most unfriendly sky. Only 11 passengers survive, but landing in an eerily empty world makes them wish they hadn't. Something's waiting for them, you see.
Two Past Midnight: "Secret Window, Secret Garden" enters the suddenly strange life of writer Mort Rainey, recently divorced, depressed, and alone on the shore of Tashmore Lake. Alone, that is, until a figure named John Shooter arrives, pointing an accusing finger.
Three Past Midnight: "The Library Policeman" is set in Junction City, Iowa, an unlikely place for evil to be hiding. But for small businessman Sam Peebles, who thinks he may be losing his mind, another enemy is hiding there as well - the truth. If he can find it in time, he might stand a chance.
Four Past Midnight: "The Sun Dog", a menacing black dog, appears in every Polaroid picture that 15-year-old Kevin Delevan takes with his new birthday gift - with each following photograph beckoning him to the supernatural. Old Pop Merrill, Castle Rock's sharpest trader, wants to crash the party for profit, but the Sun Dog, a creature that shouldn't exist at all, is a very dangerous investment.

Maybe, but I would warn him or her about the audio engineering. I love the story. But music and sound effects are distracting to the way I like to listen. I only want story and narration performance. I have had this problem before with the 'tier-2' Steven King books. It's enough to make me turn it off and return the book. Unfortunately, because the story is pretty interesting.
Story plot itself. It is a slow and strange unfolding, which is not the reason I listen to King. I really just want straight entertainment.
I haven't heard Willem Dafoe before. I really enjoy his performance.
STOP ADDING SOUND EFFECTS.
