An Evening with Stephen King

Think of the many different meanings of revival—and you'll still be amazed by what King, author of more than 50 worldwide bestsellers, has in store in his latest supernatural mystery-thriller, Revival. The strange haunting of Jamie Morton begins when he's a boy and his town's new minister pays a call. The shadow cast that day will stretch long, for both Jamie and his family. Only decades later, when he's a burned-out, strung-out musician can Jamie face the full extent of what the Revd. Charles Jacobs has done to his life.
