Each starts to close in on the other in a mega-stakes race against time.

Industry Reviews

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

I challenge you not to read this book in one breathless sitting - Guardian

A thrilling cat-and-mouse game - Irish Mail on Sunday

Enough to say that Mr Mercedes goes out not with one bang, but several - all satisfyingly unexpected. He's back with a novel different from, but as good as, anything he's previously done - The Times

A tightly plotted crime novel that retains that essential, instantly recognizable flavor that has distinguished King's fiction for more than 40 years . . . 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

To be held firmly by the hand, through this tough crime thriller by the assured narrative skill of Stephen King, make the act of reading an event. There should have been a sticker on the cover 'no book mark required' - Shots

When it comes to grabbing an audience by the throat and giving them no choice but to keep reading, King has no equal, and I challenge you not to finish this novel in one breathless sitting . . . King transcends genre, and is too warm and compassionate a writer to settle for jaggedly noir suspense. - Guardian

Expect page-turning suspense, jaw-dropping twists and all the addictive brilliance of a classic Stephen King - FHM

About the Author


Stephen King was born in Portland, Maine in 1947, the second son of Donald and Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King. He made his first professional short story sale in 1967 to Startling Mystery Stories. In the fall of 1973, he began teaching high school English classes at Hampden Academy, the public high school in Hampden, Maine. Writing in the evenings and on the weekends, he continued to produce short stories and to work on novels. In the spring of 1973, Doubleday & Co., accepted the novel Carrie for publication, providing him the means to leave teaching and write full-time. He has since published over 50 books and has become one of the world's most successful writers.

Stephen lives in Maine and Florida with his wife, novelist Tabitha King. They are regular contributors to a number of charities including many libraries and have been honored locally for their philanthropic activities.
