Stephen King – Joyland.


Joyland – Stephen King (2013, Hard Case Crime, Titan Books, London)

Not the master’s finest by any stretch, but of course I was instantly sucked in and transported to Joyland:  the smell of the corndogs and fried chicken, the delighted shouts of the riders on the Ferris wheel, the pop of the guns in the shooting gallery.  Oh yeah, and of course, there are a few ghosts, a carnival psychic who may really have the gift of sight, a sick child and his beautiful tortured mother, and a teenager with a broken heart.  It’s nothing new, but it’s good fun all the same.
