A game. A husband and wife game. Gerald's Game. But this time Jesse didn't want to play.
Lying there, spread-eagled and handcuffed to the bedstead while he'd loomed and drooled over her, she'd felt angry and humiliated. So she'd kicked out hard. Aimed to hit him where it hurt. He wasn't meant to die, leaving Jesse alone and helpless in a lakeside holiday cabin.
Miles from anywhere. No one to hear her screams. Alone. Except for the voices in her head that had begun to chatter and argue and sneer....

So I'm a certified Stephen King junkie - I thought 11-22-63 was an awesome book, I enjoyed the weird but interesting books about the Man in Black, I loved the Stand, Green Mile, Pet Cemetary, Mercedes Killer etc. But this was a rather less fulfilling read with a very odd ending tacked on to an interesting idea. Well read; and it kept me going to the end: but make sure you read his great books first!
