This collaboration is the sequel to the Talisman, again following Jack Sawyer. This time, years later, he's a retired Los Angeles Police Department lieutenant. Sawyer retires in his thirties to French Landing, Wisconsin, the town he tracked a murder to on his last LAPD case. The local police chief comes to him and asks him to help investigate a string of murders involving children. He dodges the investigation until the killer, dubbed "The Fisherman" sends him a package. The contents of the package pull him into the investigation, Sawyer know he’s going to have to confront his past and travel to “The Territories” once again.

I would like to be able to rank books a little more incrementally, to give the book 3 and 3/4stars since I can’t, I'll just round up and give the book a four.

I enjoyed the story and the collaboration between authors was nice. Their combined style was very interesting and flowed well; never did I feel like I was reading something written by two authors. I always enjoy getting to glimpse again at the worlds created through King's writing of the Black Tower story.

All in all ... all things server the beam.
