An unspeakable crime. A confounding investigation. At a time when the King brand has never been stronger, he has delivered one of his most unsettling and compulsively readable stories. An eleven-year-old boy's violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City's most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad. As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, King's propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face? When the answer comes, it will shock you as only Stephen King can.… (mais)

A pleasant surprise to see Holly Gibney back but it is truly offputting to read the juvenile jabs at Republicans. Rich prima donna leftist celebrities are the only business that consistently insults their customers. Not as bad as that asinine collaboration with his son though. ( )

This Stephen King crime thriller was also great. As with the Bill Hodges Trilogy, there is a lot of paranormal and Holy also made an important contribution to solving the case.
It all started with an arrest carried out by an avid police officer and an equally ambitious prosecutor. But, as always, appearances are deceptive, the watertight evidence is crumbling, doubts arise and while government officials are still holding on to their evidence, people are dying. Holy tries to open the eyes of the police officer, but that takes time.
It was very exciting from the start. I highly recommend it. ( )

A solid King novel - nothing particularly groundbreaking but definitely a fun and thrilling read. ( )

A young boy is violated and murdered in the most horrific manner, and all the DNA, eyewitness and fingerprint evidence points to the culprit being much loved sports coach Terry Maitland. But Terry has a rock solid alibi. Detective Ralph Anderson is tasked with finding out the truth behind the matter, but one huge question confounds him at every turn – how can one man be in two places at exactly the same time?

As always with Stephen King (especially his more recent books), this novel is compulsively readable and hard to put down. The first part reads more like a straightforward murder mystery, but things take an even darker turn in the second half when evil forces outside of our realm come into play.

King has a knack for making his stories flow, and also for creating a ripple effect – the horrendous crime committed in the book is shown to affect those not in it’s direct trajectory, and has a knock-on effect upon the people living in the town, who are shocked that such a despicable person could live in their midst.

This does feature characters from the Mr Mercedes trilogy, which I have not read, but you certainly don’t need to have read those to enjoy this. The socially awkward investigator Holly is one of my favourite characters from this story, as well as police officer Yune Sablo, but all of the characters are distinctive and well drawn.

This novel has very much got Stephen King’s stamp on it, so if you like previous books of his, I would certainly recommend this one too. ( )

Wow! There was definitely some old Stephen King in here, but overall I am extremely impressed with his current writing style. In the past I’ve gotten so overwhelmed with the “other worldly” and “alien like” plots that pop up mid book that sometimes it’s so hard to finish. This had some of that but kept on track with the main story, which was amazing. One of the best books by Stephen King in a long time in my opinion. ( )
