From the Publisher
A STUNNING NEW NOVEL FROM ONE OF THE BEST-SELLING AUTHORS OF
The #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!
Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland
tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones
comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious
murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change
his life forever.
"I love crime, I love mysteries, and I love ghosts. That combo
made Hard Case Crime the perfect venue for this book, which is one
of my favorites. I also loved the paperbacks I grew up with as a
kid, and for that reason, we're going to hold off on e-publishing
this one for the time being. Joyland will be coming out in
paperback, and folks who want to read it will have to buy the
actual book." - Stephen King
