Description-
  • On a warm October day, Jessie Burlingame lies in the bedroom of her secluded lake home, listening to the far-off sounds of the country; the cry of a loon, the growl of a chain saw, the bark of a lonesome dog. Nearer, she hears the banging of the screen door, left unlatched in the autumn breeze; nearer still, the click of the key locking the second pair of handcuffs that chain her to the bed. Gerald Burlingame, her husband of 17 years, looms over her, grin on his face, gleam in his eye, lust in his heart. This is Gerald's favorite game - little kinky, perhaps, but all in good fun.

    And then, quite suddenly, the fun is over. Gerald's heart fails him in the heat of passion, leaving Jessie hideously trapped and dreadfully alone. As darkness gathers in the room that is now Jessie's whole world, she must face not only the terror of never escaping, but the most excruciating truths about her life: the murky secrets that brought her here in the first place.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine As the greater part of this story takes place during the two days Jessie is handcuffed to her bed--and by now everyone knows why--and as this 12-cassette program is 13 hours long, it seems to take place in real time. That time goes by quickly indeed thanks to King's provocative, spooky plotting and actress Lindsay Crouse's enthusiasm, her skillful reading, and her facility with the voices in Jessie's head as she sorts out her traumatic past and finds the courage to survive. The few sound effects used to signal the beginning and the end of a cassette and important shifts in action are appropriately eerie. S.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
