Explanation of the Book:

Midwest 2009. Un salon de l'emploi. Dans l'aube glacée, des centaine de chômeurs en quête d'un job font la queue. Soudain, une Mercedes rugissante fonce sur la foule, laissant dans son sillage huit morts et quinze blessés. Le chauffard, lui, s'est évanoui dans la brume avec sa voiture, sans laisser de traces. Un an plus tard. Bill Hodges, un flic à la retraite, reste obsédé par le massacre. Une lettre du tueur à la Mercedes va le sortir de la dépression et de l'ennui qui le guettent, le précipitant dans un redoutable jeu du chat et de la souris. Avec ce polar très noir, véritable plongée dans le cerveau d'un psychopathe qui ferait passer Norman Bates pour un enfant de choeur, Stephen King démontre une fois encore son époustouflant talent de conteur, qui s'affranchit des frontières et des genres.

Explanation of the Book:

Now an AT&T Audience Original Series The fabulously suspenseful and "smashing" (The New York Times Book Review) final novel in the Bill Hodges trilogy from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers! For nearly six years, in Room 217 of the Lakes Region Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic, Brady Hartsfield has been in a persistent vegetative state. A complete recovery seems unlikely for the insane perpetrator of the “Mercedes Massacre,” in which eight people were killed and many more maimed for life. But behind the vacant stare, Brady is very much awake and aware, having been pumped full of experimental drugs...scheming, biding his time as he trains himself to take full advantage of the deadly new powers that allow him to wreak unimaginable havoc without ever leaving his hospital room. Brady Hartsfield is about to embark on a new reign of terror against thousands of innocents, hell-bent on taking revenge against anyone who crossed his path—with retired police detective Bill Hodges at the very top of that long list....

Explanation of the Book:

Schneller, gefährlicher, tödlicher – Mr. Mercedes Ein Mercedes S 600 – »zwei Tonnen deutsche Ingenieurskunst« – rast in eine Menschenmenge. Es gibt viele Todesopfer, der Fahrer entkommt. Der Wagen wird später gefunden. Auf dem Beifahrersitz liegt eine Clownsmaske, das Lenkrad ziert ein grinsender Smiley. Monate später meldet sich der Massenmörder und droht ein Inferno mit Tausenden Opfern an. Stephen King, der Meister des Schreckens, verschafft uns in Mr. Mercedes beunruhigende Einblicke in den Geist eines besessenen Mörders bar jeglichen Gewissens. Eine wirtschaftlich geplagte Großstadt im Mittleren Westen der USA. In den frühen Morgenstunden haben sich auf dem Parkplatz vor der Stadthalle Hunderte verzweifelte Arbeitsuchende eingefunden. Jeder will der Erste sein, wenn die Jobbörse ihre Tore öffnet. Im Morgendunst blendet ein Autofahrer auf. Ohne Vorwarnung pflügt er mit einem gestohlenen Mercedes durch die wartende Menge, setzt zurück und nimmt erneut Anlauf. Es gibt viele Tote und Verletzte. Der Mörder entkommt. Noch Monate später quält den inzwischen pensionierten Detective Bill Hodges, dass er den Fall des Mercedes-Killers nicht aufklären konnte. Auf einmal bekommt er Post von jemand, der sich selbst der Tat bezichtigt und ein noch diabolischeres Verbrechen ankündigt. Hodges erwacht aus seiner Rentnerlethargie. Im Verein mit ein paar merkwürdigen Verbündeten setzt er alles daran, den geisteskranken Killer zu stoppen. Aber der ist seinen Verfolgern immer einen Schritt voraus.

Explanation of the Book:

WINNER OF THE JAMES HERBERT AWARD FOR HORROR WRITING “The Troop scared the hell out of me, and I couldn’t put it down. This is old-school horror at its best.” —Stephen King Once every year, Scoutmaster Tim Riggs leads a troop of boys into the Canadian wilderness for a weekend camping trip—a tradition as comforting and reliable as a good ghost story around a roaring bonfire. But when an unexpected intruder stumbles upon their campsite—shockingly thin, disturbingly pale, and voraciously hungry—Tim and the boys are exposed to something far more frightening than any tale of terror. The human carrier of a bioengineered nightmare. A horror that spreads faster than fear. A harrowing struggle for survival with no escape from the elements, the infected…or one another. Part Lord of the Flies, part 28 Days Later—and all-consuming—this tightly written, edge-of-your-seat thriller takes you deep into the heart of darkness, where fear feeds on sanity…and terror hungers for more.

William Hodges watches more grubby reality shows, fails to enjoy his beer, and thinks, again, of shooting himself. The arrival of the mail distracts him. A letter, allegedly from the driver of the killer Mercedes, stuns him. The writer brags about killing eight and wounding many. He says that he got off sexually at he drove into the crowd. He wore a condom and used bleach to get rid of any DNA. He wore a hair net under a clown mask for the same reason. He knows Hodges is miserable and hopes the letter cheers him up. He gives Hodges a website where they can talk, including a username: kermitfrog19. Chapters 4-6 Hodges wonders if he should turn the letter over to his former partner, Pete Huntley. He believes the writer is the killer because he knows inside information about the condom and the bleach. The idea of using this letter, and chats on line, to catch the killer gives Hodges a reason to live. Chapter 7-9 Hodges analyzes the letter and sees that the writer has several identifying traits, including misusing perk for perp and peppering his words with an image of a smiley face. The same smiley face was glued onto the steering wheel of the Mercedes. Hodges calls Pete and makes a lunch date....

Explanation of the Book:

"A thoughtful and powerful page turner."--People Elvis Cole is just a detective who can't say no, especially to a girl in a terrible fix. And Jennifer Sheridan qualifies: Her fiancé, Mark Thurman, is a decorated LA cop with an elite plainclothes unit, but Jennifer's sure he's in trouble--the kind of serious trouble that only Elvis Cole can help him out of. Five minutes after his new client leaves his office, Elvis and his partner, the enigmatic Joe Pike, are hip-deep in a deadly situation as they plummet into a world of South Central gangs, corrupt cops, and conspiracies of silence. And before the case is through, every copy in the LAPD will be gunning for a pair of escaped armed-and-dangerous killers--Elvis Cole and Joe Pike. "Elvis Cole provides more fun for the reader than any L.A. private eye to come along in years."--Joseph Wambaugh "Elvis lives, and he's on his way to being crowned the king of detectives."--Booklist
