Mr. Mercedes

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

Bill Hodges 1

(1)
WINNER OF THE 2015 EDGAR AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL
#1 New York Times bestseller! In a high-suspense race against time, three of the most unlikely heroes Stephen King has ever created try to stop a lone killer from blowing up thousands. “Mr. Mercedes is a rich, resonant, exceptionally readable accomplishment by a man who can write in whatever genre he chooses” (The Washington Post).

The stolen Mercedes emerges from the pre-dawn fog and plows through a crowd of men and women on line for a job fair in a distressed American city. Then the lone driver backs up, charges again, and speeds off, leaving eight dead and more wounded. The case goes unsolved and ex-cop Bill Hodges is out of hope when he gets a letter from a man who loved the feel of death under the Mercedes’s wheels…

Brady Hartsfield wants that rush again, but this time he’s going big, with an attack that would take down thousands—unless Hodges and two new unusual allies he picks up along the way can throw a wrench in Hartsfield’s diabolical plans. Stephen King takes off on a “nerve-shredding, pulse-pounding race against time” (Fort Worth Star-Telegram) with this acclaimed #1 bestselling thriller.

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.
