The Green Mile
When Stephen King issued his New York Times bestselling novel The Green Mile in monthly installments, millions of hooked readers anxiously waited each cliff-hanging episode. Now, for the first time, all six exciting parts come together in one volume to let you enjoy Stephen King’s masterpiece uninterrupted, from gripping opening to shattering climax.
At Cold Mountain Penitentiary, along the lonely stretch of cells known as the Green Mile, killers as depraved as the psychotic “Billy the Kid” Wharton and the possessed Eduard Delacroix await death strapped in “Old Sparky”. Here guards as decent as Paul Edgecombe and as sadistic as Percy Wetmore watch over them. But good or evil, innocent or guilty, none have ever seen the brutal likes of the new prisoner, John Coffey, sentenced to death for raping and murdering two young girls. Is Coffey the devil in human form? Or is he a far, far different kind of being?
There are more wonders in heaven and hell than anyone at Cold Mountain can imagine – as the truth emerges in shock waves that only Stephen King could create and a blast of revelation that will truly blow your mind.
