One of the bestselling authors of all time, Stephen King is widely considered a master of both horror and suspense. In Joyland, King offers a tale that makes clear his love for ghosts, mysteries, and crime. It's the summer of 1973, and college student Devin Jones has just landed a job as a carny at a North Carolina amusement park. But as Devin confronts the legacy of a vicious murder and the fate of a dying child, it soon becomes clear that this is a summer job like no other.

"Stephen King is in full form. JOYLAND, narrated by Michael Kelly with just the right touch of innocence, is a creepy story about a young man who gets involved with a dying boy, his beautiful mother, and murder. A little slow at the start, the story quickly turns into an engaging, horror-tinged spookshow of the kind King has made famous. Kelly is convincing as the earnest, confused young hero. His voice convinces us that Devon Jones is a good guy who will always do the right thing. We are passengers in Jones's mind as he tries to chart the course of his life, which was difficult enough before he got involved in a series of grisly murders. M.S.
