Stephen King – Needful Things (New English Library, 1992)


There was a new shop in town.
Run by a stranger.
Needful Things, the sign said. The oddest name. A name that caused some gossip and speculation among the good folks of Castle Rock, Maine,
while they waited for opening day.

Eleven-year-old Brian Rusk was the first customer and be got just what he wanted, a very rare 1956 Sandy Koufax baseball card. Signed.

Cyndi Rose Martin was next. A Lalique vase. A perfect match for her living room decor.

Something for everyone.
Something you really had to have.
And always at a price you could just about afford. The cash price that is.
Because there was another price.
There always is when your heart’s most secret, true desire is for sale …..
