Sobre o livro
When an eleven-year-old boy is found murdered in a town park, reliable eyewitnesses undeniably point to the town's popular Little League coach, Terry Maitland, as the culprit. DNA evidence and fingerprints confirm the crime was committed by this well-loved family man. Horrified by the brutal killing, Detective Ralph Anderson, whose own son was once coached by Maitland, orders the suspect to be arrested in a public spectacle.
But Maitland has an alibi. And further research confirms he was indeed out of town that day. As Anderson and the District Attorney trace the clues, the investigation expands from Ohio to Texas.
And as horrifying answers begin to emerge, so King's propulsive story of almost unbearable suspense kicks into high gear. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy but there is one rock-hard fact, as unassailable as gravity: a man cannot be in two places at the same time. Can he?
Just good - Could be better
The story of the book is based on a Spanish legend. However, it is engaging. Sometimes the author is too much exhaustive with the details. Other times the same character thinks the same more than three times, only changing one aspect. I never read other Stephen King's book, so I don´t know if it is a regular thing on his books. For me, the story is satisfactory, but is too detailed and can be told more briefly.
