From the #1 New York Times bestselling authors of The Talisman, “an intelligent…suspenseful page-turner” (The Wall Street Journal) from “two master craftsmen, each at the top of his game” (The Washington Post).

Twenty years ago, a boy named Jack Sawyer traveled to a parallel universe called the Territories to save his mother and her Territories “Twinner” from an agonizing death that would have brought cataclysm to the other world. Now Jack is a retired Los Angeles homicide detective living in the nearly nonexistent hamlet of Tamarack, Wisconsin. He has no recollection of his adventures in the Territories, and was compelled to leave the police force when an odd, happenstance event threatened to awaken those memories.

When a series of gruesome murders occur in western Wisconsin that are reminiscent of those committed several decades ago by a madman named Albert Fish, the killer is dubbed “the Fishman,” and Jack’s buddy, the local chief of police, begs Jack to help the inexperienced force find him. But are these new killings merely the work of a disturbed individual, or has a mysterious and malignant force been unleashed in this quiet town? What causes Jack’s inexplicable waking dreams—if that is what they are—of robins’ eggs and red feathers? It’s almost as if someone is trying to tell him something. As this cryptic message becomes increasingly impossible to ignore, Jack is drawn back to the Territories and to his own hidden past, where he may find the soul-strength to enter a terrifying house at the end of a deserted tract of forest, there to encounter the obscene and ferocious evils sheltered within it.

I’m an avid reader of SK but not the Dark Tower series. I know now that Black House comes after The Talisman which ties into the DT series. It was an ok read…. A bit long and drawn out. The narration was amazing!

It was a good narrative of a Stephen King book.

The narrator was excellent. The story was weird. And not weird in a good way.

Too hard to listen too. Narrator was to sing songy for my taste. The story was not what I expected from a SK book

Excellent story, full of fun and horror. Narrator on the other hand is NOT my cup of tea. Dudes a very “windy” talker. Kinda took me out of the story to be honest. I will probably pass on future books that this narrator has read.

Not great.Tough to keep characters and storyline together,but I’m not that bright.

Frank Muller is my favorite narrator, and he doesn't disappoint! I loved the Talisman, and it was fun to see the man Jack has become. The story moves a little slow, but it picks up and ties in another King story. Between that and the Henry character makes up for the slow start

Started a little slow for a King novel, but found its pace and come on strong. As always, loved it.

I had already read the talisman and black house quite awhile back. I may sound crazy but I read black house twice and the talisman once. Loved the books, obviously. Listening to them was really good too. I have read every Stephen king book and a few by straub. Would reccomend them to anyone who likes a good fiction.

Frank Muller narrated Thomas Harris' Hannibal series and brought it to life. He should narrate S. King novels all the time. Great book and great narration.

The extension of The Talisman, featuring Jack and Speedy mixed in with a few new friends and foes once again fighting the good fight. Touching on the Gunslinger and the Tower series from time to time and more adventures into the Territories. Well read once again by Frank and his amazing voice. 5 stars
