Description

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….

Professional reviews

"This time it's another crazed car, a Buick Roadmaster with some serious quirks. Its powers come from somewhere other than its V-8. It blasts colored lights of such brightness that ordinary sunglasses are useless. People and small animals disappear into its vortex. D Troop of Pennsylvania's State Police keeps it in Shed B. Young Ned's trooper father died recently, and he wants information. The audio is narrated by six fine readers who explain what happened to Ned's father and their own strange experiences with the car even as they witness Ned's growing obsession with it. Written in chapter monologues, FROM A BUICK 8 is a perfect fit for audio. The performances are as fascinating as the plot. Few do this genre better, and while this is not his strongest work, Stephen King is still king. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
