This is an auction for DOCTOR SLEEP by Stephen King.

"King, not one given to sequels, throws fans a big, bloody bone with this long-drooled-for follow-up to The Shining (1977). The events of the Overlook Hotel had resounding effects upon Danny Torrance, and decades later he’s a drunk like his father, wondering what his battle with the “ghosties” was even for. Dan still feels the pull of the shining, though, and it lands him in a small New England town where he finds friends, an AA group, and a job at a hospice, where his ability to ease patients into death earns him the moniker Doctor Sleep. Ten years sober, he telepathically meets the “great white whale” of shining—12-year-old Abra—who has drawn the attention of the True Knot, an evil RV caravan of ­shining-eating quasi-vampires, one part Cooger & Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow Show and one part Manson’s dune-buggy attack battalion. Though the book is very poignantly bookended, the battle between Dan/Abra and the True’s “Queen Bitch of Castle Hell” is relegated to a psychic slugfest—not really the stuff of high tension. Regardless, seeing phrases like “REDRUM” and “officious prick” in print again is pretty much worth the asking price. Even for a King book, this is high profile. The Shining is often considered King’s best novel, so even lapsed fans should come out of the woodwork for this one."
