More than fifty years ago, in a placid town of New England, a shadow stretches the games of a six-year-old child. When the little Jamie looks up, above him stands the reassuring figure of the new Reverend, as soon as he arrived to give lymph to the spiritual life of the Congregation. Smart, young and likeable, Charles Jacobs conquers the trust of his parishioners and the unconditional friendship of the child: for him the shepherd is a hero, especially after he "saved her" her brother with one of him's amazing electric inventions. But the idyll lasts only three years: the tragedy falls as a lightning on Jacobs, the whole world of him is reduced to ashes and he remains only the desperate scream against the God who betrayed him. And the announcement from the little Eden that he believed he had found. Thirty years later, when Jamie has crossed America in the company of the inseparable guitar that made him famous, and artificial demons he met along the way, the shadow of Charles Jacobs will wrap it again: this time to seal A terrible and definitive pact. "Revival" is the story of two lives, the one that King has lived and the one that could have lived, through two formidable characters for power and fragility, two men to whom it happens to meet the devil and sink into his heart of darkness.
