  • "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 fathers 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 brightestshining ever seen, that reignites Dans own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra's soul and survival."

King says he wanted to know what happened to Danny Torrance, the boy at the heart of The Shining, after his terrible experience in the Overlook Hotel.

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.

  • "Die grosse Fortsetzung von 'Shining' Auf Amerikas Highways ist eine mörderische Sekte unterwegs. Sie hat es auf Kinder abgesehen, die das Shining haben. Stephen King kehrt zu den Figuren und Szenerien eines seiner berühmtesten Romane zurück: Der Dreirad fahrende kleine Danny, der im Hotel Overlook so unter seinem besessenen Vater hat leiden müssen, ist erwachsen geworden. Aber die Vergangenheit lässt ihn nicht los, und wieder gerät er in einen Kampf zwischen Gut und Böse. Die zwölfjährige Abra hat das Shining. Kann er sie retten? Nur mühevoll kann Dan Torrance die Schrecken verarbeiten, die er als kleines Kind im Hotel Overlook erlitten hat. Obendrein hat er die Suchtkrankheit seines besessenen Vaters geerbt und nimmt daher fleissig an Treffen der Anonymen Alkoholiker teil. Seine paranormalen Fähigkeiten - das Shining - setzt er nun in seinem Beruf ein: In einem Hospiz spendet er Sterbenden in ihren letzten Stunden Trost. Man nennt ihn liebevoll Doctor Sleep. Währenddessen ist in ganz Amerika eine Sekte auf der Suche nach ihrem Lebenselixier unterwegs. Ihre Mitglieder sehen so unscheinbar aus wie der landläufige Tourist - Ruheständler in Polyesterkleidung, die in ihr Wohnmobil vernarrt sind. Aber sie sind nahezu unsterblich, wenn sie sich vom letzten Lebenshauch jener Menschen ernähren, die das Shining besitzen. Das Mädchen Abra Stone besitzt es im Übermass und gerät ins Visier der mörderischen Sekte. Um sie zu retten, weckt Dan die tief in ihm schlummernden Dämonen und ruft sie in einen alles entscheidenden Kampf. Stephen King, 1947 in Portland, Maine, geboren, ist einer der erfolgreichsten amerikanischen Schriftsteller. Schon als Student veröffentlichte er Kurzgeschichten, sein erster Romanerfolg, 'Carrie', erlaubte ihm, sich nur noch dem Schreiben zu widmen. Seitdem hat er weltweit 400 Millionen Bücher in mehr als 40 Sprachen verkauft. Im November 2003 erhielt er den Sonderpreis der National Book Foundation für sein Lebenswerk."
