Madison Smartt Bell is one of the most versatile and gifted authors of his generation, a literary stylist with few peers. Doctor Sleep, one of his best novels, is a taut and satisfying psychological thriller planned to be released as a major motion picture under the title Hypnotic. Adrian Strother is a hypnotherapist who, paradoxically, can't get to sleep. He plies his trade in a depressed section of London, doing the occasional job for Scotland Yard, which brings him into contact with an unsavory drug trafficker. As little girls become the target of a serial killer, Adrian treads the line between tortured wakefulness and surreal sleep, and the gifts of his insomnia are called upon to unlock the secrets of a man who believes he has discovered the key to immortality. Part spiritual pilgrimage, part thriller, Doctor Sleep is witty, menacing, and deeply satisfying, a bravura performance by one of today's finest writers.

Stephen King returns to the character and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance and the very special twelve-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. On highways across America, a tribe of people called the True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless—mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and spunky twelve-year-old Abra Stone learns, the True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the steam that children with the shining produce when they are slowly tortured to death. Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel, where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father’s legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him, and a job at a nursing home where his remnant shining power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes “Doctor Sleep.” Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan’s own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra’s soul and survival. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of devoted readers of The Shining and satisfy anyone new to this icon in the King canon.

An der Wegmarkierung Mile 81 des Maine-Turnpike steht eine mit Brettern vernagelte Raststätte. Hier treffen sich sonst die älteren Schüler, um zu trinken und Dinge zu tun, die ältere Schüler gern in Schwierigkeiten bringen. Der 11-jährige Pete Simmons ist heute aber allein hier, weil er weiß, dass die Großen woanders sind. Er findet eine halbvolle Wodkaflasche und trinkt davon so viel, dass er benebelt einschläft. Kurz darauf rollte ein schlammverdreckter Kombi (komischerweise hat es in Maine seit Wochen nicht geregnet) auf den von Unkraut überwachsenen Parkplatz, obwohl auch der Tankstellenbetrieb vor Längerem eingestellt wurde. Die Fahrertür öffnet sich, aber niemand steigt aus. Doug Clayton, Versicherungsvertreter aus Bangor, ist ein gottesfürchtiger Mensch. Der verlassen dastehende Kombi weckt den Samariter in ihm. Er biegt von der Schnellstraße ab und hält mit seinem Prius hinter dem schlammigen, kennzeichenlosen Kombi. Etwas später hält auch Julianne Vernon, die gerade mit ihrem Pferdeanhänger unterwegs ist. Die beiden leeren Autos haben sie neugierig gemacht. Sie findet Claytons zerbrochenes Handy neben der offenen Kombitür – und kommt dieser dabei selbst zu nahe. Als Pete Simmons aus seinem Dämmerschlummer erwacht, steht ein halbes Dutzend Autos an der Raststätte Mile 81. Zwei Kinder – Rachel und Blake Lussier und ein Pferd namens Deedee sind die einzigen Lebewesen, die er sieht. Es sei denn, man zählt den Kombi dazu.

Perseguitato dalle visioni provocate dallo shining, la luccicanza, il dono maledetto con il quale è nato, e dai fantasmi dei vecchi ospiti dell'Overlook Hotel dove ha trascorso un terribile inverno da bambino, Dan ha continuato a vagabondare per decenni. Una disperata vita on the road per liberarsi da un'eredità paterna fatta di alcolismo, violenza e depressione. Oggi, fi nalmente, è riuscito a mettere radici in una piccola città del New Hampshire, dove ha trovato un gruppo di amici in grado di aiutarlo e un lavoro nell'ospizio in cui quel che resta della sua luccicanza regala agli anziani pazienti l'indispensabile conforto fi - nale. Aiutato da un gatto capace di prevedere il futuro, Torrance diventa Doctor Sleep, il Dottor Sonno. Poi Dan incontra l'evanescente Abra Stone, il cui incredibile dono, la luccicanza più abbagliante di tutti i tempi, riporta in vita i demoni di Dan e lo spinge a ingaggiare una poderosa battaglia per salvare l'esistenza e l'anima della ragazzina. Sulle superstrade d'America, infatti, i membri del Vero Nodo viaggiano in cerca di cibo. Hanno un aspetto inoffensivo: non più giovani, indossano abiti dimessi e sono perennemente in viaggio sui loro camper scassati. Ma come intuisce Dan Torrance, e come imparerà presto a sue spese la piccola Abra, si tratta in realtà di esseri quasi immortali che si nutrono proprio del calore dello shining. Uno scontro epico tra il bene e il male, una storia agghiacciante e meravigliosa, un ritorno al fantastico e all'horror dei primi lavori di King. Doctor Sleep inquieta e fa paura, ma soprattutto commuove ed emoziona.
