“Kill his wife before she kills him." LE Willetts’ Cross Killer follows the story of Eileen and Malcolm Muldoon, a couple whose twenty-five year marriage has finally grown stale. Utterly convinced that Eileen wants him dead, and encouraged by the unlikely friendship he has forged with his new friend Rita, Malcolm knows what he must do. Meanwhile, a lunatic is stalking the streets, preying on innocent women. Women who are all connected to Malcolm and whom he bears some form of known grudge. As the death toll rises, and Malcolm’s behaviour becomes more erratic, Eileen starts to question his involvement. She has suspected that her husband is capable of murder ever since that unfortunate incident when the pushchair mysteriously fell into the swimming pool with the child still strapped inside, and Malcolm simply pulled out a chair and sat down to watch. Even DI Lucas Elliott seems convinced of Malcolm’s guilt. After all, Malcolm does have an uncanny knack of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Will Malcolm succeed in his quest to rid himself of his wife so he can start his new life with Rita? Is he guilty of the other murders? He definitely has a secret. But then so does Eileen. As does Lucas... and Rita. This story will appeal to fans of crime, thrillers and whodunit’s. Unlike some of the more traditional crime novels, Cross Killer is a refreshingly light-hearted read with humour intertwined throughout the plot.

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.
