    There was one rock hard fact, as unassailable as gravity a man could not be in two places at the same time. Stephen King amazes me Here, he has managed to turn a 300 page story into a 560 page story by leading us on a long winded wild goose chase while waffling on about almost everything, but somehow, though it seems hard to fathom, I could not put this cracktastic shit down.If you are thinking about reading this because you like mysteries and thrillers and have seen this in the latest There was one rock hard fact, as unassailable as gravity a man could not be in two places at the same time.

    3.5 3.75 This started off really good but it slowed down towards the end I was happy there was some connection to the Bill Hodges series which I liked a lot and recommend you read first since there are some spoilers here but I was overall underwhelmed.Recommend it but it s not for everyone.
