The #1 New York Times bestseller from Stephen King—a novel about the fascination deadly things have for us and about our insistence on answers when there are none…

Since 1979, the state police of Troop D in rural Pennsylvania have kept a secret in the shed out behind the barracks. Ennis Rafferty and Curtis Wilcox had answered a strange call just down the road and came back with an abandoned 1953 Buick Roadmaster. Curt Wilcox knew old cars, and this one was…just wrong. As it turned out, the Buick 8 was worse than dangerous—and the members of Troop D decided that it would be better if the public never found out about it. Now, more than twenty years later, Curt’s son Ned starts hanging around the barracks and is allowed into the Troop D family. And one day he discovers the family secret—a mystery that begins to stir once more, not only in the minds and hearts of these veteran troopers, but out in the shed as well, for there’s more power under the hood than anyone can handle…

This was an excellent book. I've heard it before on cassette and still have it. it's been one of my favorite Stephen King books. Been awhile since I heard it last. I really enjoyed the narrators. They did an excellent job, made me feel like I was there. I highly recommend this book.

Love the story, but at times, I got a little lost. Went back a few times and picked up the missing parts. Overall, I love the story, can’t wait to see if there will be a second part to it.

My opinion on this book is mixed. This is, officially, the first book that I've ever listened to without having read first, and while I enjoyed the overall theme, it was difficult to follow at times. There were a lot of first person narratives that jumped between past and present, with a lot of insignificant and/or uninteresting details sprinkled throughout. The mystery of the car kept my attention, however, and left me with a satisfying, albeit anticlimactic conclusion. Basically this story was Christine The Green Mile with a smidgen of The Tommyknockers tossed in for good measure. Definitely not one of my favorite King "reads", but it was well recorded and not a horrible way to spend on a commuter train.
