5 OUT OF 5 STARS
This was a great start to the trilogy. 1. Mr. Mercedes 2. Finder’s Keepers 3. End of Watch.
This first one is about a retired detective trying to find a murderer. Detective Hodges was very good at what he did, but he never was able to catch a murderer who crashed a Mercedes into people who were just overnighting in a job fair line outside of a building years before he retired. This Mr. Mercedes man has some serious issues. He sends a letter to the retired detective writing how much he enjoyed it; How he was curious to see how it would make him feel; And how happy it made him to know that he killed a mother and her baby together. So, he’s got more work to do still.
Mr. Mercedes is a very sick mind, though he is your typical blends-into-society type of psycho. I finished this book some time last week so if I’m remembering correctly it ends on a decent note.
But this is just the beginning. I’m eager to read more!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE STEPHEN KING STORY? I plan on reading a bunch of his books this year and want to read the best ones.
NEW AND UNDISCOVERED AUTHORS!! I plan on reading a bunch from them, too. At the moment, I am reading Darkest Light by Ashley Earley. So if you have any suggestions for me on that feel free to list it in the comments!
Happy reading, bookworms.
