THE MAN IN THE BLACK SUIT FOUR UNABRIDGED DARK TALES FROM

STEPHEN KING
The Man in the Black Suit
Read by John Cullum

"...the face of the man in the black suit grows ever clearer, ever closer, and I remember every word he said. I don't want to think of him, but I can't help it, and sometimes at night my old heart beats so hard and so fast I think it will tear itself right clear of my chest."

A haunting recollection of a mysterious boyhood event, The Man in Black Suit read by John Cullum leads off this masterful collection from Stephen King.

Other dark tales include: All That You Love Will Be Carried Away read by Peter Gerety, in which a man checks into a Lincoln, Nebraska Motel 6 to find the meaning in his life; That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is in French read by Becky Ann Baker presents the ultimate case of déejàa vu; and The Death of Jack Hamilton read by Arliss Howard -- a blistering tale of Depression-era outlaws on the run.

Whether writing about encounters with the dead, the near dead, or about the mundane dreads of life, Stephen King's The Man In The Black Suit: Four Dark Tales is intense, eerie and instantly compelling.

About the Author:

Stephen King is the author of more than fifty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. His novel 11/22/63 was named a top ten book of 2011 by The New York Times Book Review and won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Mystery/Thriller as well as the Best Hardcover Book Award from the International Thriller Writers Association. He is the recipient of the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He lives in Bangor, Maine, with his wife, novelist Tabitha King.

From AudioFile:

Another four short stories from EVERYTHING'S EVENTUAL (a 14-story collection) begin with the title piece, read by John Cullum. While his performance of Satan appearing to a little boy captures evil incarnate, the boy's accent--indistinctly Western or Southern--clashes harshly with the story's setting in western Maine. A better choice is "All That You Love Will Be Carried Away," read by Peter Gerety, who nails a traveling salesman's suicidal despair, which is tempered by a flicker of hope burning on the thin wick of his graffiti collection. Becky Ann Baker offers a competent rendering of "You Can Only Say What It Is in French," and Arliss Howard gives a spirited performance of the Dillinger gang on the run.
