This week mine is Mr Mercedes by Stephen King
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. The plot is kicked into gear
when Bill Hodges receives a letter in the mail, from a man claiming to
be the perpetrator. He taunts Hodges with the notion that he will
Hodges wakes up from his depressed and vacant retirement, hell-bent on preventing that from happening.
Brady Hartfield lives with his alcoholic mother in the house where he was born. And he's preparing to kill again.
Only Hodges, with a couple of misfit friends, can apprehend the killer
in this high-stakes race against time. Because Brady's next mission, if
it succeeds, will kill or maim hundreds, even thousands.
