After a horrific killing, the police arrest Little League coach Terry Maitland during a ballgame in front of most of the town of Flint City, Oklahoma. A in-depth investigation isn't required, with numerous eyewitness testimonies, blood and DNA samples. Only ... Maitland was with the English faculty of his school at the time with footage and fingerprints to back up his ironclad alibi. The story moves from police procedural to horror as Holly Gibney is brought in to help investigate. A familiar face from King's "Mr. Mercedes" trilogy, Gibney -- who's already experienced some unbelievable adventures of her own -- joins a skeptical lead detective and Maitland's lawyer and investigator to an abandoned tourist spot in an effort to find the culprit and protect the next victim, one of the original eyewitnesses.
