Mr. Mercedes

Winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award, Best Novel, 2015

(1)
A cat-and-mouse suspense thriller featuring a retired homicide detective who's haunted by the few cases he left open, and by one in particular - the pre-dawn slaughter of eight people among hundreds gathered in line for the opening of a jobs fair when the economy was guttering out. Without warning, a lone driver ploughed through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes.

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.
