A CASTLE ROCK NOVEL WITH A FOREWORD BY STEPHEN KING PREPARE TO RETURN AGAIN TO STEPHEN KING'S CASTLE ROCK, THE SLEEPY LITTLE TOWN BUILT ON A BEDROCK OF DEEP, DARK SECRETS, JUST AS IT'S ABOUT TO AWAKEN FROM ITS QUIET SLUMBER ONCE MORE. Something evil has swept into the small Maine town of Castle Rock on the heels of the latest winter storm. Sheriff Norris Ridgewick and his team are desperately searching for two missing girls. In Washington D.C., thirty-seven-year-old Gwendy Peterson couldn't be more different from the self-conscious teenaged girl who once spent a summer running up Castle Rock's Suicide Stairs. That same summer, she was entrusted - or cursed - with the extraordinary button box by a mysterious stranger in a black suit. Gwendy has never told a soul about the box - not even her husband. But one day it shows up again. Inspired by the curious appearance of the box and the troubling disappearances in her hometown, Gwendy returns to Castle Rock, where time is running out for the girls as a dangerous man is preparing the unthinkable . . .

Recensioner i media

One of the most anticipated projects of the year is a novel-length sequel to Gwendy's Button Box, a novella written in collaboration with Stephen King and set in the heart of King's fictional backyard: Castle Rock, Maine. Chizmar carries the tale forward into Gwendy's future with sympathy and grace. The result is at once an independent creation and a particularly intimate form of collaboration...Chizmar's voice and sensibility dovetail neatly with King's own distinctive style, and the book ultimately reads like a newly discovered chapter in King's constantly evolving fictional universe. * Washington Post * Praise for GWENDY'S BUTTON BOX by Stephen King and Richard Chizmar * - * Man, I love this story! The whole thing just races and feels so right-sized and so scarily and sadly relevant. Loved the characters...and the sense of one little girl's connection to the whole world through this weird device. It all just sang -- JJ Abrams A resonant novella set in one of King's signature locales: the small town of Castle Rock, Maine * Washington Post * This absorbing novella...packs quite a punch * Publishers Weekly * Readers will eagerly devour this thought-provoking, satisfying tale, even as it leaves them unsettled * Booklist * He captures the small town vibe that made the Rock so popular, and when Gwendy returns home the story really takes off . . . Chizmar juggles the emotional beats around Gwendy's family and friends with a Castle Rock-appropriate plotline that hearkens back to stories such as Cujo and The Dead Zone, without overpowering the narrative. The family drama is at the heart of the tale but we never lose sight of the other events . . . A welcome return for Gwendy, in Chizmar's capable hands. * Sci Fi Bulletin *
