Description



About the Book



"A masterful, intensely suspenseful novel about a reader whose obsession with a reclusive writer goes far too far--a book about the power of storytelling, starring the same trio of unlikely and winning heroes King introduced in Mr. Mercedes."--Provided by publisher.



Book Synopsis



The second book in Stephen King's Bill Hodges trilogy (Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, End of Watch), an AT&T Audience Original Series, now in its second season!

"Stephen King's superb new stay-up-all-night thriller is a sly tale of literary obsession that recalls the themes of his classic 1987 novel Misery" (The Washington Post)--the #1 New York Times bestseller about the power of storytelling, starring the same trio of unlikely and winning heroes Stephen King introduced in Mr. Mercedes.

"Wake up, genius." So announces deranged fan Morris Bellamy to iconic author John Rothstein, who once created the famous character Jimmy Gold and hasn't released anything since. Morris is livid, not just because his favorite writer has stopped publishing, but because Jimmy Gold ended up as a sellout. Morris kills his idol and empties his safe of cash, but the real haul is a collection of notebooks containing John Rothstein's unpublished work...including at least one more Jimmy Gold novel. Morris hides everything away--the money and the manuscripts no one but Gold ever saw--before being locked up for another horrific crime. But upon Morris's release thirty-five years later, he's about to discover that teenager Pete Saubers has already found the stolen treasure--and no one but former police detective Bill Hodges, along with his trusted associates Holly Gibney and Jerome Robinson, stands in the way of his vengeance...

Not since Misery has Stephen King played with the notion of a reader and murderous obsession, filled with "nail biting suspense that's the hallmark of [his] best work" (Publishers Weekly).



Review Quotes



Praise for Finders Keepers

"Stephen King's superb new stay-up-all-night thriller, Finders Keepers, is a sly, often poignant tale of literary obsession that recalls the themes of his classic 1987 novel Misery...a love letter to the joys of reading and to American literature... wonderful, scary, moving."-- "Elizabeth Hand, The Washington Post"

Praise for Mr. Mercedes

Classic Stephen King. Creepy, yet realistic characters that get under your skin and stay there, a compelling story that twists and turns at breakneck speed, and delightful prose that, once again, proves that one of America's greatest natural storytellers is also one of its finest writers.-- "Associated Press"

"[A] taut thriller about the thin line separating fandom from fanaticism...Bellamy is one of King's creepiest creations--a literate and intelligent character whom any passionate reader will both identify with and be repelled by. His relentless pursuit of a treasure that his twisted thinking has determined is rightfully his generates the nail biting suspense that's the hallmark of King's best work. A sharp closing twist suggests Hodges will be back."-- "Publishers Weekly"

"A taut, suspenseful race-against-time book . . . [King is] in reliably fine form."-- "New York Times"

"As in Misery and TheShining, King swan dives into the looniness lurking at both ends of thewriter-reader transaction...the narrative hums and roars along like ahigh-performance vehicle...a rip-snortingentertainment; one that also works as a sneaky-smart satire of literarycriticism and how even the most attentive readers can often miss the wholepoint."-- "Kirkus Reviews, starred review"

"King's many, many fans will want this, especially those who enjoyedMisery, but the second volume in King's projected trilogy will appeal to anyone who enjoys suspense and action, or anyone who finds enlightenment in reading about the internal struggle between right and wrong. It's not necessary to have read the previous book to enjoy this one."-- "Library Journal"

"Nicely dark, never predictable and altogether entertaining."-- "Kirkus Reviews"

A taut, calibrated thriller . . . The majority of the book is merciless and unforgiving, and the scariest thing about it is how plausible the whole scenario is.-- "Miami Herald"

On one level, Mr. Mercedes is an expertly crafted example of the classic race-against-the-clock thriller. On another, it is a novel of depth and character enriched throughout by the grace notes King provides in such seemingly effortless profusion. It is a rich, resonant, exceptionally readable accomplishment by a man who can write in whatever genre he chooses.-- "Washington Post"
