Stephen King's Joyland is w be available from Encore at a great low price! Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever. Joyland is a breathtaking, beautiful, heartbreaking book, said Charles Ardai, Edgar- and Shamus Award winning editor of Hard Case Crime. It s a whodunit, it s a carny vel, it s a story about growing up and growing old, and about those who don t get to do either because death comes for them before their time. Even the most hardboiled readers will find themselves moved.
