Inferno: Part 1

When I stepped on that flight to Rome, I never could have imagined the man sitting across the aisle from me would tilt my world on its axis.


He claimed it was fate that brought us together.

But I never believed in such notions.


That was something for the dreamers, the romantics, not someone as practical and pragmatic as I.


Fate had nothing to do with me walking in on my soon-to-be husband in a compromising position with his secretary.


Fate had nothing to do with me hopping on a plane to Rome, effectively standing up my former fiancé on our wedding day.


And fate certainly had nothing to do with the handsome stranger sitting across the aisle from me, one who would open my mind and heart to things I never thought possible.


Because if fate is real, she's cruel and unforgiving.


I thought I'd left my past behind when I stepped onto that plane. 


I was a fool to think I could ever truly escape my past. 


Not when it's so viciously intertwined with my present.

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.
"Super delicious alpha and a heroine that will make you melt!" - Reader Review


Nolan Burke was never really a criminal.


He’d joined the Syndicate to learn how to be a man. Pissing off his socialite mother was just a bonus, as was hanging around South Boston with Bridget Mongahan and his best friend Will. But that was before Bridget dumped him without explanation. Forced to pick up the pieces, Nolan returned to law school and set about fulfilling the real purpose of someone of his station — making money.


Bridget Monaghan has never been ashamed of her working class upbringing.


She loves everything about Southie, loves living with her parents and brother in their small row house and knowing everyone she passes on the sidewalk. Going to night school to become a lawyer was a way to do something meaningful with her life, a way to make the world a better place. Then her brother was diagnosed with ALS and she was forced to make the most painful decision of her life — let Nolan Burke go to save her brother.


Four years later, Bridget is working as a lawyer for the Irish mob, trying to cover the expense of her brother’s medications and treatments, when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a war between the Syndicate and a former I.R.A. operative running the criminal organization in South Boston. When the Syndicate asks for Nolan’s help, he and Bridget are drawn into a deadly turf war that will force them to decide if they should save themselves — or risk everything for love.
