WINNER OF THE 2015 EDGAR AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL
In a mega-stakes, high-suspense race against time, three of the most unlikely and winning heroes Stephen King has ever created try to stop a lone killer from blowing up thousands.

In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes.

In another part of town, months later, a retired cop named Bill Hodges is still haunted by the unsolved crime. When he gets a crazed letter from someone who self-identifies as the “perk” and threatens an even more diabolical attack, Hodges wakes up from his depressed and vacant retirement, hell-bent on preventing another tragedy.

Brady Hartsfield lives with his alcoholic mother in the house where he was born. He loved the feel of death under the wheels of the Mercedes, and he wants that rush again. Only Bill Hodges, with a couple of highly unlikely allies, can apprehend the killer before he strikes again. And they have no time to lose, because Brady’s next mission, if it succeeds, will kill or maim thousands.

Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.

In the early hours of a foggy morning he drives through a whole bunch of people waiting in line for a job fair taking their lives. – Months later Bill and his companions are eager to stop whatever the villain has in mind after he approached Bill in a unconventional way. Suspense and curiosity on every page – guaranteed page-turner. You are going to smile at simple human acts and shake your head incredulous about how a mind can be burned and sick. You will be disgusted and angry with a mother that has abandoned every right to have and raise a son… two sons. The hardest part while reading was realizing how extremely close to reality this story is. Reading about Brady’s terroristic thoughts made me shiver over and over again. My favourite character in the whole story was Janey, Olivia’s sister. I loved how „light“ and spontaneous she was no matter all the terrible things that has happened. Also Holly is a very interesting character and I hope to learn more about her in a future.
