Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King

Mr. Mercedes
by Stephen King

As Stephen King has been known to do in the past, he quickly got me hooked on characters in this story; I could NOT put the book down until it was finished. Bill Hodges is a retired cop, or "ret det", as he's called by Brady Hartsfield. Brady was the one who killed and injured so many people at the job fair when he ran them over with a stolen Mercedes. He claims that'll be his last crime, but will it? When he writes to Hodges--who retired with that crime unsolved--trying to goad him into suicide, it's likely he actually believes the job fair incident was his last crime. But will it be? -- recommended by Tracy T. - Bennett Martin Public Library
