Two days before his release date, his wife Laura dies in a mysterious car crash, in adulterous circumstances. Dazed, Shadow travels home, only to encounter the bizarre Mr Wednesday, who claims to be a refugee from a distant war, a former god and the king of America.

But the storm is about to break . . .
Disturbing, gripping and profoundly strange, Gaiman's epic novel sees him on the road to the heart of America.
