My name is Alexis Hembree, and I’m a cop. My partner and I are good at our jobs, except we don’t tend to work what others would call a “normal” beat. For some reason we draw evil to us like flies to sugar.

Sometimes there are things in this world we can’t explain or anticipate. But when they cross that line between their existence and ours, when they show up, we have to deal with them as best we can.

Some cops fight criminals. We fight something that never should have existed.

Matt Green's successful capitalist lifestyle is shattered when a trusted property management company mismanages his portfolio, leaving him with vacant rental properties, civil litigation, mounting debts, and the threat of criminal charges for harassment. He meets an enigmatic and alluring woman, Angelique Augusto, on an internet dating site. After two passionate weeks, Angelique begins to show a terrifying side, demanding to know Matt's whereabouts every hour of every day.

Then Matt receives a visit from a police detective who questions him in connection with the murder of a man Angelique met on an internet dating site. Frustrated by the Canadian judicial system, his mounting litigation, and his fear of being wrongly convicted of murder, Matt flees with Angelique to the lawless Sierra Madre of Mexico to reunite with Angelique's long-lost sister, Gloria Alvarez.

Matt discovers Angelique is a Tarahumara Indian, a descendant of a peaceful and reclusive tribe with the propensity for fierce retribution when their cultural identity is threatened. Unlike the Canadian judicial system, the Tarahumara brand of justice is A Head for an Eye; steal from them and they kill you.

While Matt finds Angelique's toughness and passion endearing, her possessive and obsessive behavior makes him suspect she's completely insane, totally capable of and willing to commit murder. Matt is horrified when she joins forces with a drug cartel assassin and orders a hit on a thug she learns has besmirched her family honor.

In macabre fashion, A Head for an Eye juxtaposes the ruthless Tarahumara brand of justice with the questionable Canadian justice system, explores the mysterious Indian tribe said to have solved every problem known to mankind, and delivers a gritty and action-packed journey into one of the most murderous and lawless regions in the world.
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It—publishing just as the second part of It, the movie, lands in theaters.

In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.”

In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is Stephen King’s gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don’t always win.
