Time has run out for one of the inmates at the Cold Mountain penitentiary. Eduard Delacroix is set to take that final walk down the Green Mile. But first he must say good-bye--to the guards, to his fellow inmates, and to a strange creature that forever changed his life. Little does he know of the terrible fate that awaits him, and of a devilish plan of revenge.

Nothing you have ever read can prepare you for Stephen King's boldest exercise in terror, a multi-part serial audiobook that begins on Death Row and burrows inward to the most horrific secrets of the heart. Put yourself in Stephen King's hands, and feel the grip get tighter and tighter.
