Bag of Bones by Stephen King
Hardcover - 560 pages (September 22, 1998) Scribner; ISBN: 0684853507 ; Dimensions (in inches): 1.86 x 9.59 x 6.58
Bag of Bones is partly inspired by Daphne du Maurier's classic Rebecca, but there's more than
homage in this novel of horror and romance. Like du Maurier's Manderley, King's scary old place (on the
shore of Maine's remote Dark Score Lake) is haunted by the late lady of the manor. There are many gory
ghosts afoot, though: men, women, and wailing kids. The hero, a thriller novelist, stirs up hell's plenty of
angry shades while investigating his wife's death. It turns out she either had a dark secret herself or
was onto some dread scandal lurking in Dark Score Lake. As in King's previous book, Wizard and
Glass, the fabric of reality is thin, and nosy narrators are in peril of plunging right out of this world and
into a rather hostile otherworld.
