Prison Warden Hal Moores and his wife Melinda have also been Paul and Janice Edgecombe's friends. When Paul learns that Melinda has a brain tumor, he decides to help but knows that the warden would never allow John Coffey to leave the prison and, obviously, Melinda could not go there. He and the other guards from E Block take on a dangerous plan to spirit Coffey out during the night risking their jobs--not something to take lightly in 1932--and possibly their lives.
The individual installments are no longer in print but are available as a single volume.
Truth time is approaching at Cold Mountain Penitentiary. Paul Edgecombe is taking a huge gamble, one where the stakes are high and the consequences deadly. He and his fellow guards take convicted killer John Coffey away from Death Row in the dead of night and bring him to the bedside of a woman writhing in torment. It is there they will find out once and for all if this mountain of a man is a miracle worker or a monster . . .
Nothing you have ever read can prepare you for Stephen King's boldest exercise in terror, a multi-part serial novel that begins on Death Row and burrows inward to the most horrific secrets of the heart. Brace yourself. The tension tightens as Stephen King brings you closer to his story's climax.
