Mr. Mercedes: A Novel

Title: Mr. Mercedes: A Novel
Author: Stephen King
Call Number: McNaughton
Location: 1st Floor McNaughton
Rating: Recommended
Book Review: Mr. Mercedes follows the merging storylines of its main characters: the driver of a stolen car who plowed through a crowd waiting to attend a job fair and the now-retired police officer who was unable to solve the crime before retiring. As always, the dialog is dynamic, but there is a slightness to this book that isn’t apparent in King’s usual work. The plot barrels along with the speed of a car on the autobahn, but the finish line becomes obvious too soon for complete satisfaction.
