With a stunning new cover look, King’s ‘powerful sequel to The Shining’ (Observer) – an instant international No. 1 bestseller.
Following a childhood haunted by terrifying events at the Overlook Hotel, Dan Torrance has been drifting for decades.
Finally, he settles into a job at a nursing home where he draws on his remnant ‘shining’ power to provide crucial comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes ‘Doctor Sleep’. Then he meets Abra Stone, a girl with ‘the brightest shining’ ever seen.
But her gift is attracting the beautiful yet merciless Rose the Hat and her followers The True Knot. They may look harmless, the sort of people who are devoted to their campers and RVs, but they live off the ‘steam’ that children like Abra produce. Now Dan must call upon his powers once more as he battles for Abra’s soul and survival – facing his fears and reawakening ghosts from his past.
