Description

Master storyteller Stephen King presents the classic "terrifyinggripping" (Miami Herald) #1 New York Times bestseller—"his highest Fahrenheit reading yet" (Time)! Andy McGee and Vicky Tomlinson were once college students looking to make some extra cash, volunteering as test subjects for an experiment orchestrated by the clandestine government organization known as The Shop. But the outcome unlocked exceptional latent psychic talents for the two of them—manifesting in even more terrifying ways when they fell in love and had a child. Their daughter, Charlie, has been gifted with the most extraordinary and uncontrollable power ever seen—pyrokinesis, the ability to create fire with her mind. Now the merciless agents of The Shop are in hot pursuit to apprehend this unexpected genetic anomaly for their own diabolical ends by any means necessary...including violent actions that may well ignite the entire world around them as Charlie retaliates with a fury of her own....

Professional reviews

"This vintage Stephen King is as exciting now as it was 30 years ago when he wrote it. Even if you read it then, listen to this spectacular rendering from Dennis Boutsikaris--it recaptures all the excitement in a whole new way. Boutsikaris flawlessly delivers the atmosphere and pacing of which King is a true master. His narration perfectly portrays the struggles of 8-year-old Charlie McGee, who discovers she has mysterious pyrokinetic powers. (She can start a fire by thinking about it.) At the same time, Boutsikaris's vocal rendering of the adults who vie to use Charlie's power for good or for evil amplifies the drama. Boutsikaris's delivery is a terrific example of the power of a clean narrative voice. M.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
