“Not all the things which happen in small towns are known to the residents, no matter how sharp their eyes are or how energetically their tongues wag.”

The farewell to Castle Rock, an epic tale of corruption visiting the small town in the shape of shopkeeper Leland Gaunt. Seldom has villainy been so passive, yet efficient. Gaunt himself does very little – he only turns the people against each other in an intricate plan designed to create total chaos. Very entertaining.
