In The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King returns to the rich landscape of Mid-World, the spectacular territory of the Dark Tower fantasy saga that stands as his most beguiling achievement.

Roland Deschain and his ka-tet—Jake, Susannah, Eddie, and Oy, the billy-bumbler—encounter a ferocious storm just after crossing the River Whye on their way to the Outer Baronies. As they shelter from the howling gale, Roland tells his friends not just one strange story but two . . . and in so doing, casts new light on his own troubled past.

“Pitch perect...[it] works beautiully...Even those who are not a-miliar with the series will fnd the conclusion both moving andsatisying.” –

, Starred Review  “I have always ound Rolands ormative years the most compelling,and this takes us back to the year ollowing his mother’s death…Testory reads like a genre mash-up o horror/western/detective fction,in which our hero rides into town to wade through gore, solve amystery, and bring justice to an unruly rontier town. Te experience will urther steel him or the man he will become, the stone-acedgunslinger who makes bullets dance rom six-shooters with sandal- wood grips…I elt enchanted…[King] still tells stories better thananyone.” –
