Come close, children, and see the living crocodile. A vintage '54 blue Buick Roadmaster. At least, that's what it looks like... There is a terrifying secret shrouded in Shed B out the back of the state police barracks in Statler, Pennsylvania. A secret which lures its victims, terrified yet irresistibly tempted, to look at its beautiful chrome fenders, silver grille and exotic exhaust system. None of which works. Because the power of the Buick 8 is not turbo-charged or fuel-injected. For twenty years, the Buick bas lured curious officers to watch its terrifying displays - from blinding light-shows to feeding time. Come take a look. Because the Buick is a conduit to a world beyond. Young Ned Wilcox will be next. Ned has started coming by the barracks: mowing the lawn, washing the windows, shovelling snow. It's the boy's way of holding on to his father recently killed in a strange road accident by another Buick. And Ned can feel it pulling him, whispering for him to come in and take a look. And so he peers through the windows of Shed B and discovers the family secret. And like his father, Ned wants answers. He deserves answers. And the secret begins to stir... From a Buick 8 will suck you into the powerful force of the imagination of the world's bestselling writer. It is a riveting and moving novel about the fascination deadly things have for us. About our need to, map out the road ahead and make the pieces of the jigsaw fit. It is about the chains we forge - that can hold us captive, or set us free.
