In the Oregon coastal hamlet of Deception Bay stands a mysterious lodge. Some call it the Colony; others whisper that it’s a cult. To the women who live there, it’s a refuge. But a killer knows their secrets—and will make sure they never feel safe again . . .

WICKED GAME
Twenty years after Becca Hudson’s friend, Jessie, vanished from St. Elizabeth’s high school, a body is unearthed on school grounds. Far from solving the mystery, the discovery unleashes a string of new, horrible accidents. Is it coincidence—or has Jessie's murderer returned to finish what was started years ago?

WICKED LIES
Laura Adderley didn't plan to get pregnant, though she'll do anything to protect her baby. But now a reporter is asking questions about the lodge. And while he figures out Laura's connection to the story, Laura can sense a psychopath bent on her destruction . . .

SOMETHING WICKED
Detective Savannah Dunbar just wants to wrap up paperwork before taking medical leave. But her department's investigation into a double homicide has suddenly become personal. There are disturbing rumors about the Colony, its matriarch, and its history. Yet Savannah knows they’re no match for the wicked truth . . .

WICKED WAYS
Elizabeth Gaines Ellis wants to believe she’s just an ordinary suburban wife and mother. Yet for months, she’s worried that she's the cause of a series of brutal deaths. No one takes her seriously—except the private investigator prying into her past. But others have secrets too, and a relentless urge to kill without remorse . . .

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.
