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.
The first three books in the Damien Kaine Thriller Series is now available in one download. If you are a CSI, Criminal Minds, or Motive fan, then this series is for you.


Damien wants out. He wants out of his job, out of his condo, and out of Chicago.

But the dead won’t let him go, just yet.

He and his partner, Detective Joe Hagan, from the Vicious Crimes Unit, are sent to investigate a murder in the rural farming communities of Illinois. With few clues and forensic evidence left at the scene, Damien has little to work with.

After a second girl is found, an FBI profiler is assigned to the case.

Not only must Damien deal with the mounting pressures that a serial killer may be living in their backyard; he must also deal with the FBI looking over his shoulder, questioning his every move.

Tensions rise reaching their breaking point, as Damien and his team uncover information that will rip this tight-knit community’s vision of small-town America to shreds.

And begs the question, do you really know your neighbors?


Blood coats the steps at St. Florentine Cathedral in Chicago, Illinois.

Lt. Damien Kaine stands over the mutilated body of Father Shri Mandahari. A note left by the killer indicates the Catholic Church is keeping secrets.

Someone wants those secrets exposed and the Church will do whatever it can to keep that from happening.

Even if it means, they are protecting a killer.

As the investigation unfolds, Damien finds himself and those closest to him in danger, and he will protect those he loves at all costs.

It's that desperation that puts him and his partner Detective Joe Hagan in a situation with deadly consequences.

All this leads to one question, can God really protect his flock?


The holidays have come and gone. The new year in Chicago brings the race for Governor to the forefront and an old killer back to town.

When a prominent political figure is murdered, Lieutenant Damien Kaine realizes the lengths some will go to in order to get what they want.

Damien's high-profile family and ties to the future Governor, only complicate a case that is fast becoming a struggle against one of Chicago’s oldest and most powerful families.

As the bodies begin to pile up, evidence shows a connection to a case he and his partner Detective Joe Hagan had five years ago at the 17th precinct.

The FBI and Division Central are rushing Damien to close the case.

Not sure whom they can trust, Damien and Joe must close ranks and rely on each other.

As they get closer to the real meaning of the gruesome string of murders, not only does Damien and Joe have a target on their backs, but so do those they care about.

And a killer who will stop at nothing to remove Damien from the case, permanently.
