    I just finished the Bill Hughes trilogy and really enjoyed it. While not as scary as some of Mr. King's work, the story and characters were real and it was a great read. I did note a small editing exception in End of Watch. Toward the end Brady has dressed in Babineau's warm coat and boots (ch. 28) but he is wearing Babineau's 'expensive loafers' when Jerome parks a snow-cat on him (ch 34). This is just an FYI. It is the first error I have ever noticed and I have read Steven King extensively. My wife does call me semantic man and I tend to find, or actively seek, issues in logic. Any way, I am really anxious to hear more about the Dark Tower movie. Great series and a wonderful ending.

    Welcome to the site, nice to have you here. :smile: (I did have a wee giggle though... you noticed the boots/loafers snafu, but not that he is Stephen with a "ph" rather than a "v". :biggrin2: )
    Keep posting... and I agree, The Dark Tower series is wonderful!

    FlakeNoir,

    Ouch!! Mea Culpa, big time. No one let's anything by on this post, which is good. We should all deal with ourselves before trolling any else. Thanks again for the response.

    Spiderman,

    Thanks for the hello.

    Welcome. I like SK's move into crime fiction. It didn't need to be horror. The characters were creepy enough.
