A masterful, intensely suspenseful novel about a reader whose obsession with a reclusive writer goes far too far - a book about the power of storytelling, starring the same trio of unlikely and winning heroes King introduced in MR MERCEDES.
FINDERS KEEPERS is spectacular suspense, and it is King writing about how literature shapes a life - for good, for bad, for ever. Not since MISERY has King written with such visceral power about a reader with such a dangerous obsession
Morris Bellamy is a reader so obsessed by America's iconic author John Rothstein that he is prepared to kill for a trove of notebooks containing at least one more unpublished novel.
Pete Saubers, a boy whose father was brutally injured by a stolen Mercedes, discovers a buried trunk containing cash and Rothstein's notebooks.
After thirty-five years in prison, Morris is up for parole. And he's hell-bent on recovering his treasure.
Now it's up to retired detective Bill Hodges - running an investigative company called 'Finders Keepers' - to rescue Pete from an ever-more deranged and vengeful Morris...
