Finders Keepers – Stephen King

Another brilliant book by Stephen King. He is in fine form with this sequel to “Mr. Mercedes”. The way this story ended has me nothing but hopeful that there has to be a third installment.

These books have the classic Stephen King feel to me. Fright, suspense, and a touch of paranormal and unexplainable things happening quietly in the background.

Bill Hodges is enjoying his retirement from Detective, and quite successful in his private detective business. This story picks up where “Mr. Mercedes” ended, but the focus has turned to one of the families that was devastated by the actions of Mr. Mercedes.

If you have read “Mr. Mercedes”, then some of these names will be familiar to you. If you have not read it, yet, I cannot recommend it enough. In this installment, we get more of Holly, now Hodges assistant. Jerome and Barbara are still in this story, and we get to meet Pete and Tina Saubers. Their father was seriously injuring in the City Center Massacre, and Pete finds a way to help them with their financial struggles. Although he does nothing illegal, per-se, what he does do has serious consequences for his family. It is up to Bill to save all of them.

If you have gotten to read this as well, I would love to here what you thought of it!

    You and I have very different opinions of this book. I only gave this 3 stars. I was disappointed in it. It was an okay book – just not Stephen King (old Stephen King) caliber. I wanted some psychological thriller or horror and this was just a run of the mill book.

      Thanks for sharing Pamela! I have read other books of Mr. King and said…”What?”… and other people raved about it. I do understand what you are saying though. I am thinking, and hoping, that the psychological stuff is coming with the next book, because I think Brady Hartsfield is about to let the world know he is neither comatose, or brain-dead. Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it!
