Publisher's Summary

The unpause-able novel of one man's quest to find the source of his nightmare and to reverse it before he becomes...nothing at all. This number-one national best seller from Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman, "pulsates with will have you on the edge of your seat" (Publishers Weekly).
Billy Halleck commits vehicular manslaughter when his lack of attention results in the death of an old gypsy lady on the street. Overweight Halleck is a lawyer with connections, though, and he gets off with a slap on the wrist. After the trial, the victim's ancient father curses him with a single word: "thinner". Shedding weight by the week, Halleck is desperate enough for one last that will lead him to a nightmare showdown with the forces of evil melting his flesh away.
With an introduction by Stephen King on "The Importance of Being Bachman", Thinner is a novel of "undeniable suspense" (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution) and "genuine chills" (Kirkus Reviews).

Sickness can be Evil. In this case it was so.

This was an interesting read. Just what would be expected but then a wicked twist. And an ending that makes you think.
