Next question. What exactly is Finn? Here’s the breakdown…
From #1 New York Times bestselling author and legendary storyteller Stephen King comes a darkly funny and deeply unsettling tale of how bullies and madmen can so easily and tragically upend the lives of the innocent.
Set in Ireland, Finn tells the story of what happens when a young man, wildly unlucky since birth, finds himself caught up in a case of mistaken identity – or is it something more sinister?
King targets a peculiarly 21st Century monster: men so consumed by spy and war games that they twist reality to suit their purposes. Subjected to torture alternately sinister and absurd, Finn travels through existential and psychological crises that are signatures of King’s fiction. Finn’s grandmother has promised that God owes him but what are the chances of that when the author of his fate is the undisputed master of the macabre and terrifying?
