2016 Audie Award Finalist for Best Male Narrator
The second book in Stephen King’s Bill Hodges trilogy (Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, End of Watch)—now an AT&T Audience Original Series!
“Stephen King’s superb 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kills his idol and empties his safe of cash, but the real haul is a collection of notebooks containing John Rothstein’s unpublished work...including at least one more Jimmy Gold novel.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).
Great follow-up to Mr Mercedes
I enjoyed this one from word one. SK and Will Patton do a great job of keeping your head into the story. Some have complained about the character voices but Patton does a great job moving back and forth between all of them. Can’t wait to start End of Watch!
Great book trilogy!
Apple books, however, cannot keep chapters straight!
"Close Credits" was 5 hrs!
I will buy audiobooks elsewhere.
Apple book is not trustworthy!
I have gotten used to Mr. Patton’s reading style. I still don’t like it, absolutely hate his female voices!! Ewwww! But the story is good and this time there is more than just suspense. There is actual unexplained (as of now) things happening. So, I still recommend you actually reading it yourself, but, if like me you are unable, then by all means listen away!!
