About the Book

In this sequel to The Talisman, Jack Sawyer is now in his late thirties and has taken early retirement from the LAPD, retreating to a small town in Wisconsin. He has no memory of his adventures as a twelve-year-old boy, when he traveled into a parallel universe in search of the talisman that would save his mother's life. A series of murders involving young children force him out of retirement. There is more to these cases than murder, though, and Jack must retrieve his childhood memories to rescue the latest victim, who is coveted by the killer's evil overlord, a powerful force from End-World, in Roland the gunslinger's universe.

About the Edition

Jack Sawyer is a retired Los Angeles homicide detective living in the small hamlet of Tamarak, Wisconsin. He has no recollection of the events twenty years ago that led him to a parallel universe called the Territories to save his mother from certain death. When a series of gruesome murders occurs in western Wisconsin. Jack's buddy, the local chief of police, begs Jack to help the inexperienced force find the killer. As cryptic messages in Jack's waking dreams become increasingly difficult to ignore, he is drawn back to the Territories and to his own hidden past, where he must find the soul-strength to enter a terrifying house at the end of a deserted tract of forest - and to encounter the obscene and ferocious evils sheltered within it.
(back cover)

First Sentence

Right here and now, as an old friend used to say, we are in the fluid present, where clear-sightedness never guarantees perfect vision.
