Dean Evers, an elderly widower, sits in front of the television with nothing better to do than waste his leftover evenings watching baseball. It’s Rays/Mariners, and David Price is breezing through the line-up. Suddenly, in a seat a few rows up beyond the batter, Evers sees the face of someone from decades past, someone who shouldn’t be at the ballgame, shouldn’t be on the planet.

A Face In The Crowd

Not the usual Stephen King. I like his longer stories better. I'm a big fan. I have most of his books.

Don,t remember how much I paid for this book, but I hope it want much because it wasn't worth whatever I did pay. Mr King is getting a little desperate for cash or something. I hope I am entitled to the rest of the story free of charge when he gets around to finishing it.
