Mr. Mercedes

4.5 2

100.0

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

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

Nobody can do it quite like Stephen King . . . He's a storyteller; one you'd have listened to for hours, as the sun set and the gulls cried on the dockside at Piraeus - Spectator

King aficionados will be riveted from the first explosion of violence to the final, equally seismic climax - Financial Times

Hypnotic and creepy, it deserves to be ranked alongside King's masterpieces - Daily Mail

Stephen King

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.
