Elevation
by
The Master of Horror strikes again. Up against books about vampires, haunted houses, and Satan himself, Stephen King’s eerie tale of a small town with big troubles beat back the competition. The bestselling storyteller might need to buy a bigger award shelf: He now has eight Goodreads Choice Awards, including Best Mystery & Thriller this year with The Outsider.
