Meet Skyy, a fantastic new superhero - and sensitive assassin - who defends the helpless and brings justice to those who cannot fight for themselves.

Sandora "Sandy" Knight is an enigma even to those who know her. Running a Fortune 500 company by day, she sheds her hip-hop cosmopolitan identity by night to become the Lady in Black, also called Skyy, a sexy, smart vigilante who protects the innocent from child molesters, rapists, serial killers, and other low-life scum.

The first novel in The Lady in Black series Black Skyy weaves an intricate tale of heroism, lethal beauty, and intoxicating eroticism. Skyy believes she is called by God to use her abilities to save others from the brutality of life - even if her methods are questionable at times. Set in both New York and Washington, D.C., Black Skyy follows Skyy's adventures in all their sensational and sensual thrills as she employs her uncanny intellect to capture and punish evildoers. Battling not only the bad guys, but also her inner conflicts, Skyy must fight to find her place and purpose in life, as both a woman and a symbol of justice.

A NEW YORK TIMES 100 NOTABLE BOOKS OF 2019 SELECTION

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It.

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.
