Another great read from Stephen King. In his second book of the Mr. Mercedes trilogy, Stephen King grabbed my attention from the very first chapter. Although the first book was very intense and gory, this story brought a different level of fear into the work of detective Bill Hodges. His team consisting of Bill, Holly and Jerome return for another adventure in this book, one that has much more than they know about in store. This story is based around Morris Bellamy, a crazed fan of John Rothstein’s work and his mission to find the books he stole from him after he gets out of jail. I really enjoyed just how detailed Stephen King’s character descriptions are, and how no matter what perspective he puts the story in, you feel connected to that character, like you are a part of their universe for the time you read about them. This was a very gripping, intense and obviously scary, story to read, but I enjoyed every second of it, and I can’t wait to read the next one in the series. Rate: 3.5/5
