Duma Key by Stephen King
In Duma Key, Edgar Freemantle has made a fortune in construction when he's severely injured on a job site when a crane backs into his pickup truck. Suffering an amputated arm, broken leg, a crushed hip, and a brain injury, he spends months in agonizing rehab. The brain injury leaves him with an anger problem, and his wife of 25 years leaves him. Edgar retreats to a tiny island off the Florida coast, Duma Key, and takes up painting and sketching with his remaining arm, and does well enough with it to attract attention. Edgar never had artistic talent before and he finds that it's almost as if someone, or something else, is doing the paintings. He can't stop painting them, and he repeats the same themes over and over, and begins to suspect that they have something to do with the island's menacing past. Stephen King's novel has received mostly positive reviews with the St. Petersburg Times saying, "Whether you're interested in such highfalutin stuff as theories of art and the reimagining of Greek myth, or you just want a delicious scare, King is in wonderful form in this book. One of the keys to his mastery of the horror genre is his knack for anchoring the most bizarre, unearthly events amid utterly believable everyday realism."
