About

The final installment is here at last and its Stephen King at his very best and shows why he is a master when it comes to storytelling.With multi-layered meaning, nuanced settings, Stephen King certainly does not disappoint as he takes horror to a whole new level. The book is surreal in the sense the story that’s featured here can find an echo in what’s happening today with the blue whale app. The story takes up where the last installment left Hodges, in a hospital bed. And as he recovers slowly from his injuries, he realizes that he has managed to pick up new talents and soon the infamous Mr. Mercedes comes into the picture. The book manages to ratchet up the tension with every page so that you are soon hooked to the events playing out, to the last page. A definite must read and one of the top 10 trilogies to come out this year.

The magnificent finale to the New York Times bestselling trilogy that started with Mr. Mercedes (winner of the Edgar Award) and also Finders Keepers--At End of Watch, the diabolical"Mercedes Killer" pushes his enemies into suicide, and when Bill Hodges and Holly Gibney do not come up with a way to stop him, they will be victims. In Room 217 of the Lakes Region Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic, something has awakened. Something bad. Brady Hartsfield, perpetrator of those Mercedes Massacre, in which eight people were killed and several more were severely injured, was at the practice for five decades, at a vegetative state. According to his doctors, anything approaching a comprehensive recovery is not likely. But supporting the spit and moan, Brady is alert, also in possession of deadly new abilities which let him wreak unimaginable chaos without leaving his hospital room. Retired police officers Bill Hodges, the improbable hero of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers, today runs an investigation agency together with his spouse, Holly Gibney--the girl who delivered the blow to Hartsfield's mind that place him on the mind injury ward. When Bill and Holly are known as a suicide scene with ties into the Mercedes Massacrethey find themselves dragged in their most dangerous situation however, one that is going to place their lives in danger, in addition to those of Bill's epic young buddy Jerome Robinson and his teenaged sister, Barbara. Brady Hartsfield is back, and likely revenge not only on Hodges and his buddies, but within an whole city. In End of Watch, Stephen King brings the Hodges trilogy into a sublimely chilling conclusion, mixing the detective fiction of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers using all the heart-pounding, supernatural suspense which was his bestselling trademark. The outcome is an unnerving look in human vulnerability and frightening suspense. Nobody does it better than King.
