Román od úspešného Stephena Kinga, autora Doctor Sleep, My Brief History, Joyland a mnohých ďalších rozpráva príbeh o staršom pištoľníkovi Rolandovi a jeho snahe nájsť Tmavú vežu. Fanúšikovia už existujúcich siedmich kníh sa dozvedeli o tom, čo sa prihodilo Rolandovi po tom, ako opustil Smaragdové mesto a dorazil na okraj Calla Bryn Sturgis.

Teraz na neho čakajú ďalšie, úplne odlišné dobrodružstvá. Roland rozpráva príbeh o svojom smutnom detstve, kedy mu ako malému chlapcovi zomrela milujúca matka. V jeho spomienkach ho však vyruší neočakávaná skutočnosť. Hoci je sám ešte teenager, musí sa postarať o malého chlapca. Pred spaním mu číta z knihy, z ktorej mu kedysi dávno čítala jeho matka. Vracia sa tak akoby späť do obdobia svojho, aj keď len miestami bezstarostného detstva. Na prvý pohľad sa môže zdať, že Roland si žije bezstarostný život. Ako to však v živote býva, prekvapí nás vtedy, keď to vôbec nečakáme.

Dej románu The Wind Through the Keyhole: A Dark Tower Novel sa odohráva medzi Dark Tower 4: Wizard and Glass a Dark Tower 5: Wolves of the Calla, Ak vás uvedené predchádzajúce knihy zaujali, určite nie je problém kúpiť si ďalší diel, aby ste neboli dlho držaní v napätí. Príbeh pokračuje a má mnohé zaujímavé zvraty.

For readers new to The Dark Tower, THE WIND THROUGH THE KEYHOLE is a stand-alone novel, and a wonderful introduction to the series. It is a story within a story, which features both the younger and older gunslinger Roland on his quest to find the Dark Tower. Fans of the existing seven books in the series will also delight in discovering what happened to Roland and his ka tet between the time they leave the Emerald City and arrive at the outskirts of Calla Bryn Sturgis.This Russian Doll of a novel, a story within a story, within a story, visits Mid-World's last gunslinger, Roland Deschain, and his ka-tet as a ferocious storm halts their progress along the Path of the Beam.

(The novel can be placed between Dark Tower IV and Dark Tower V.) Roland tells a tale from his early days as a gunslinger, in the guilt ridden year following his mother's death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape shifter, a "skin man," Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast's most recent slaughter. Roland, himself only a teenager, calms the boy by reciting a story from the Magic Tales of the Eld that his mother used to read to him at bedtime, 'The Wind through the Keyhole'.

"A person's never too old for stories," he says to Bill. "Man and boy, girl and woman, we live for them." And stories like these, they live for us.
