Description
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, four "disturbing, fascinating" (The Washington Post) novellas—including the story "1922," a Netflix original film—that explore the dark side of human nature."The pages practically turn themselves" (USA TODAY) in Full Dark, No Stars, an unforgettable collection centered around the theme of retribution. In "1922," a violence awakens inside a man when his wife proposes selling off the family homestead, setting in motion a grisly train of murder and madness. In "Big Driver", a mystery writer is brutally assaulted by a stranger along a Massachusetts back road and plots a revenge that will bring her face-to-face with another stranger: the one inside herself. In "Fair Extension," making a deal with the devil not only saves a man from terminal illness but also provides rich recompense for a lifetime of resentment. In "A Good Marriage," the trust forged by more than twenty years of matrimony is irrevocably shattered when a woman makes a chance discovery leading to the horrifying implications of just who her husband really is. Like Different Seasons and Four Past Midnight, which generated such enduring hit films as The Shawshank Redemption and Stand by Me, King's Full Dark, No Stars is a "page-turner" (The New York Times) "as gripping as his epic novels" (St. Louis Post-Dispatch), and "an extraordinary collection, thrillingly merciless, and a career high point" (The Telegraph, UK).

Full Dark, No Stars
fullDescription
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, four "disturbing, fascinating" (The Washington Post) novellas—including the story "1922," a Netflix original film—that explore the dark side of human nature.
"The pages practically turn themselves" (USA TODAY) in Full Dark, No Stars, an unforgettable collection centered around the theme of retribution.

In "1922," a violence awakens inside a man when his wife proposes selling off the family homestead, setting in motion a grisly train of murder and madness.

In "Big Driver", a mystery writer is brutally assaulted by a stranger along a Massachusetts back road and plots a revenge that will bring her face-to-face with another stranger: the one inside herself.

In "Fair Extension," making a deal with the devil not only saves a man from terminal illness but also provides rich recompense for a lifetime of resentment.

In "A Good Marriage," the trust forged by more than twenty years of matrimony is irrevocably shattered when a woman makes a chance discovery leading to the horrifying implications of just who her husband really is.

Like Different Seasons and Four Past Midnight, which generated such enduring hit films as The Shawshank Redemption and Stand by Me, King's Full Dark, No Stars is a "page-turner" (The New York Times) "as gripping as his epic novels" (St. Louis Post-Dispatch), and "an extraordinary collection, thrillingly merciless, and a career high point" (The Telegraph, UK).
