Only on audio! A brand-new, never-before-published Stephen King story unavailable in any other format!
Alden McCausland and his mother are what they call “accident rich”; thanks to an unexpected life insurance policy payout and a winning Big Maine Millions scratcher, Alden and his Ma are able to spend their summers down by Lake Abenaki, idly drinking their days away in a three-room cabin with an old dock and a lick of a beach.
Across the lake, they can see what “real rich” looks like: the Massimo family’s Twelve Pines Camp, the big white mansion with guest house and tennis court that Alden’s Ma says is paid for by “ill-gotten gains” courtesy of Massimo Construction. When Alden’s holiday-weekend sparklers and firecrackers set off what over the next few years comes to be known as the 4th of July Arms Race, he learns how far he and the Massimos will go to win an annual neighborly rivalry – one that lands Alden in the Castle County jail.
Read by beloved Down East storyteller Tim Sample – praised by Stephen King for his “wit and talent and good-heartedness” – Drunken Fireworks makes for explosive audio listening.
