SOMETIMES GROWING UP 
 
MEANS FACING YOUR DEMONS
 
The son of a struggling single mother, Jamie Conklin just wants an ordinary childhood. But Jamie is no ordinary child. Born with an unnatural ability his mom urges him to keep secret, Jamie can see what no one else can see and learn what no one else can learn. But the cost of using this ability is higher than Jamie can imagine – as he discovers when an NYPD detective draws him into the pursuit of a killer who has threatened to strike from beyond the grave. 
 
LATER is Stephen King at his finest, a terrifying and touching story of innocence lost and the trials that test our sense of right and wrong. With echoes of King’s classic novel It, LATER is a powerful, haunting, unforgettable exploration of what it takes to stand up to evil in all the faces it wears.

    Not quite the normal King page turner, but a good story nonetheless. He always seems to answer the open question. Great writers stand in the shoes of their future readers. Those shoes fit Mr. King quite well.
  • Disappointing

    Not up to the Stephen King standards. Can definitely skip this one.
  • The Master of Horror does it again

    Stephen King has woven yet another chilling tale, one stretched out over a decade, about a boy with a strange gift that threatens to become a deadly curse. King’s characters are so well crafted that they seem to have life’s all their own… even the ones no longer among the living. Superb!
  • Great Read!

    This one isn’t up to his usual standards. A shadow of past works of genius and madness.

    For King, a shorter novel, but with plenty of substance and what’s-going-to-happen-next page turning suspense. Told in the first person, he puts you up front in the action. Recommend to all readers of novels.
