* BungledSuicide: After his wife and his daughter died, Wireman shot himself in the head, but survived. The bullet remained lodged in his brain for a while after, giving Wireman some form of foresight (probably though the influence of Perse). One of Edgar's paintings removes the bullet.

In this novel by Creator/StephenKing, the retired company owner, Edgar Freemantle, gives an account of a chain of events that formed the strangest year in his life. Freemantle tells the story of events that took place four years ago on the little Floridan island, Duma Key. The prelude to this, happens some months before, when Edgar is almost crushed to death in an accident with a crane, and as a result he loses his right arm, damages his hip, and suffers from loss of vocabulary and memory, and is prone to having intense and violent fits of anger, especially when the latter is causing him trouble.

After the accident, Edgar's wife, Pam, leaves him after he harms her during his mood swings, and the depressed Edgar is playing with thoughts of suicide. His psychologist, Dr. Kamen, advises him to try and settle down somewhere new for a year and cultivate his old hobby of sketching.

After browsing brochures Edgar feels strangely drawn to the island Duma Key, and with the help of Jack Cantori, a local college student, he moves into a rented house named Salmon Point (which Edgar nicknames "Big Pink"). As part of his healing process, he starts drawing pencil-sketches and taking walks on the island, during which he meets and befriends Jerome Wireman, a former lawyer and the caretaker and hired companion of Elizabeth Eastlake, the old woman who owns all the houses on Duma Key and suffers from Alzheimer's disease.

As he is drawing more and more pictures, Edgar starts feeling weird itchy sensations in his missing arm, and discovers that this is giving him the ability to make some really good, but also very {{spooky painting}}s, some of which appear to be windows into the past, while others can outright [[RealityWarper warp reality]] and [[ArtInitiatesLife initiate life]]. But is it really Edgar himself who is the mind behind these paintings, or is it something else? Something sinister? And could it somehow be related to the rumors about the terrible things that happened on Duma Key in the 1920s? And just who is the feminine figure in the red cloak who appears on Edgar's paintings?
