'Wake up, genius.' So begins King's instantly riveting story about a vengeful reader. The genius is John Rothstein, a Salinger-like icon who created a famous character, Jimmy Gold, but who hasn't published a book for decades. Morris Bellamy is livid, not just because Rothstein has stopped providing books, but because the nonconformist Jimmy Gold has sold out for a career in advertising. Morris kills Rothstein and empties his safe of cash, yes, but the real treasure is a trove of notebooks containing at least one more Gold novel.

Morris hides the money and the notebooks, and then he is locked away for another crime. Decades later, a boy named Pete Saubers finds the treasure, and now it is Pete and his family that Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney, and Jerome Robinson must rescue from the ever-more deranged and vengeful Morris when he's released from prison after thirty-five years.

Not since Misery has King played with the notion of a reader whose obsession with a writer gets dangerous. Finders Keepers is spectacular, heart-pounding suspense, but it is also King writing about how literature shapes a life - for good, for bad, forever.

MEDIA REVIEWS
King has the popular novelist's gifts in spades - a flawless sense of pace, an ear for dialogue, an eye for the telling detail, a no-mess-no-fuss approach to characterisation -- Keith Miller * Spectator *
An almost constant build of momentum, growing in pace and tension until it finally explodes... manages to thrill with every page * Guardian *
A classic cat-and-mouse tale, this is King at his rip-roaring best * Mail on Sunday *
Fantastic...In part a love letter to literature, this is vintage King - jaw droppingly brutal but full of heart and humanity. Roll on the last in the trilogy * Sunday Mirror *
A remarkable display of storytelling. -- John Dugdale * Sunday Times *
It's expertly plotted, a series of pieces falling into place with almost audible satisfaction as the author burns towards his suitably horrific climax. -- Alison Flood * Observer *
This novel is slick, seamlessly crafted, shockingly gory and packed with suspense * The Times *
MR MERCEDES was a terrific thriller, and now there's a sequel. I squeak with glee. -- Natalie Haynes * Independent *
FINDERS KEEPERS is a first-rate crime thriller, but it's also to King's credit that, more than 40 years into his career, he continues to experiment, and his talent, curiosity, and generous, humane spirit show no signs of flagging. -- John Connolly * Irish Independent *
Unlike John Rothstein it seems Stephen King is determined to publish everything he can write. If books such as the effortlessly exciting FINDERS KEEPERS are the result, we should all be grateful. * Glasgow Herald *

Praise for MR MERCEDES:
'I challenge you not to read this book in one breathless sitting

* Guardian *
Stephen King might just be America's greatest living novelist . . . THE BEST THRILLER OF THE YEAR . . . Recommended to crime buffs and King fans alike. * Sunday Express *
A very remarkable and singular writer. He can catch dialogue, throw away an observation or mint a simile, sometimes, brilliantly . . . Storytelling is everything - and by golly does he know how to carry the reader. * Observer *
Expect page-turning suspense, jaw-dropping twists and all the addictive brilliance of a classic Stephen King. * FHM *
Deserves to be ranked alongside King's masterpieces * Daily Mail *
A thrilling cat-and-mouse game * Irish Mail on Sunday *

“I Found it All a Bit Flat”

As a huge fan of both King and crime, I had high hopes for his hardboiled noir series. Mr Mercedes was pretty good. The sequel, Finders Keepers, is a bit of a letdown.

The problem is that the detective feels... More
