Summary

The number one best-selling author Stephen King's memorable story Apt Pupil - published in his 1982 story collection Different Seasons and made into a movie starring Ian McKellan and Brad Renfro - is now available as a stand-alone publication.

You must know that your fate and my own are inextricably intertwined.

Todd Bowden is an apt pupil. Good grades, good family, a paper route. But he is about to meet a different kind of teacher, Mr Dussander, and to learn all about Dussander's dark and deadly past...a decades-old manhunt Dussander has escaped to this day.

Yet Todd doesn't want to turn his teacher in. Todd wants to know more. Much more. He is about to face his fears and learn the real meaning of power - and the seductive lure of evil.

A classic story from Stephen King, Apt Pupil reveals layers upon layers of deception and horror as the boy and old man hold each other in a mutual death grip. Each knows something the other wants kept secret.
