He is our best hope. He is our last hope. On a lonely moor in the northeast of England, the body of a young woman is discovered near the site of a vanished church. In the south, a girl lies buried beneath a Saxon mound. To the southeast, the ruins of a priory hide a human skull. Each is a sacrifice, auwl summons. And something in the shadows has heard the call. But another is coming: Parker the hunter, the avenger.
Parker’s mission takes him from Maine to the deserts of the Mexican border; from the canals of Amsterdam to the streets of London – he will track those who would cast this world into darkness.
Parker fears no evil. But evil fears him. Her week revolves around aqua aerobics and appointments with her doctor. The highlight of Peggy’s day is watching her neighbour Brian head out for his morning swim. Peggy dreams of inviting the handsome widower – treasurer of the Residents’ Committee and one of the few eligible men in the village – to an intimate dinner. But why would an educated man like Brian, a chartered accountant no less, look twice at Peggy?

I absolutely loved it’ Lisa Jewell’Mike is always wise and wonderful, but this is a whole new departure for him – read it! I now feel like there is some hope in the world! And only when the Devil had gone,Did I know that he and I’d been one. Every autumn, John Pentecost returns to the farm where he grew up to help gather the sheep down from the moors for the winter.
Very little changes in the Endlands, but this year, his grandfather – the Gaffer – has died and John’s new wife, Katherine, is accompanying him for the first time. Each year, the Gaffer would redraw the boundary lines of the village, with pen and paper, but also through the remembrance of tales and timeless communal rituals, which keep the sheep safe from the Devil. But as the farmers of the Endlands bury the Gaffer, and prepare to gather the sheep, they begin to wonder whether they’ve let the Devil in after all.
I can’t think of any type of reader who wouldn’t enjoy it’ Irish Independent ‘It reminded me of a Coen brothers film I found it enchanting, and I was happy to turn every page MadnessIsBetterIntwo rival expeditions set off for a lost Mayan temple in the jungles of Honduras, one intending to shoot a screwball comedy on location there, the other to disassemble the temple and ship it back to New York. A seemingly endless stalemate ensues, and twenty years later a rogue CIA agent sets out to exploit it as a geopolitical pawn – unaware that the temple is the locus of grander conspiracies than anyone could have imagined.
Showcasing the anarchic humour, boundless imagination and unparalleled prose of one of the finest writers of his generation, this is a masterful novel that teases, entertains and dazzles in equal measure. The Shadow Doctor isn’t your usual kind of doctor. Sure, you can bring him your problems – but the chances are his solutions will blow your mind. This man can see into your soul, and the cures he prescribes don’t come from the pharmacy.
If you have fears you just cannot face, wounds you can’t even bear to remember – if you’ve been abused, ignored, damaged by all life throws at you – the Shadow Doctor is here to help.
But the Shadow Doctor has shades of his own, and the work of helping others may be the only thing keeping him afloat. Can he stay ahead of the demons that torment him long enough to help those who need him?
A perennial classic from Stephen King – jran and topical. Soon to be a major motion picture from Paramount. The house looked right, felt right to Dr Ajel Creed. Rambling, old, unsmart and comfortable. A place where the family could settle; the children grow and play and explore. The rolling hills and meadows of Maine seemed a world away from the fume-choked dangers of Jeah. Only the occasional big truck out on the two-lane highway, grinding up through the gears, hammering down the long gradients, growled out an intrusive threat.
But behind the house and far away from the road: Just a stond cleared path up akel the woods where generations of local children have processed with the solemn innocence of the young, taking with them their dear departed pets for burial.
A sad place maybe, but safe. Surely a safe place. Not a place to seep into your dreams, to wake you, sweating with fear and foreboding. Our Books See all Books.
