Praise for Mr Mercedes

  • A tightly plotted crime novel that retains that essential, instantly recognizable flavor that has distinguished King's fiction for more than 40 years . . . On one level, MR MERCEDES is an expertly crafted example of the classic race-against-the-clock thriller. On another, it is a novel of depth and character enriched throughout by the grace notes King provides in such seemingly effortless profusion. It is a rich, resonant, exceptionally readable accomplishment by a man who can write in whatever genre he chooses. - Washington Post

  • When it comes to grabbing an audience by the throat and giving them no choice but to keep reading, King has no equal, and I challenge you not to finish this novel in one breathless sitting . . . King transcends genre, and is too warm and compassionate a writer to settle for jaggedly noir suspense. - Guardian

  • Expect page-turning suspense, jaw-dropping twists and all the addictive brilliance of a classic Stephen King - FHM

  • Nobody can do it quite like Stephen King . . . He's a storyteller; one you'd have listened to for hours, as the sun set and the gulls cried on the dockside at Piraeus - Spectator

  • King aficionados will be riveted from the first explosion of violence to the final, equally seismic climax - Financial Times

  • Hypnotic and creepy, it deserves to be ranked alongside King's masterpieces - Daily Mail

  • America's greatest living novelist. - Lee Child
