Read Finders Keepers (Bill Hodges Trilogy, #2) Online Free - 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
“Wake up, genius.” So begins King’s instantly riveting story about a vengeful reader. The genius is John Rothstein, an iconic author who created a famous character, Jimmy Gold, but who hasn’t published a book for decades. Morris Bellamy is livid, not just because Rothstein has stopped providing books, but because the nonconformist Jimmy Gold has sold out for a career in advertising. Morris kills Rothstein and empties his safe of cash, yes, but the real treasure is a trove of notebooks containing at least one more Gold novel.
Morris hides the money and the notebooks, and then he is locked away for another crime. Decades later, a boy named Pete Saubers finds the treasure, and now it is Pete and his family that Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney, and Jerome Robinson must rescue from the ever-more deranged and vengeful Morris when he’s released from prison after thirty-five years.
Not since Misery has King played with the notion of a reader whose obsession with a writer gets dangerous. Finders Keepers is spectacular, heart-pounding suspense, but it is also King writing about how literature shapes a life—for good, for bad, forever.

Before we begin, I feel I need to state a few things. Over the course of the next few months you will see reviews from people who thought this book was "just okay". You will see reviews from people who are only reading it so that they will be able to hate-review it and they want a clean conscienc...

Shit don't mean shit.
That's a "famous quote" by the author John Rothstein, who penned the Jimmy Gold books. Rothstein pretty much didn't give two craps about his fans whining about only three Gold books being released. Rothstein didn't give many craps at all about much of anything. Until he is aw...

The good news is that it isn’t as bad as Mr. Mercedes, and that there’s actually a halfway decent plot lurking in here. The bad news is that this makes it more clear than ever that Stephen King does horror a helluva lot better than he does crime thrillers.
The story starts out with an acclaimed au...

A STRONG FIVE STARS!!!!!
It took me 2 years to return to this series. I was lukewarm about “Mr. Mercedes”.....not bad but not FANTASTIC.....
But....I kept wanting to return to this series after hearing little bits and pieces of ‘positive’ — STRONGER THAN POSITIVE — comments about bo...

Here's my review of the first book: Mr. Mercedes
I wasn't expecting to be completely amazed by this. Yes, King is my favorite author, but I know his strong point is Horror, and not Crime. The most important thing that I learned after reading this latest novel of his was that Stephen King can write...

Stephen King has done it again! Written a great 5 star thriller... I loved Finders Keepers, the second book of the Bill Hodges trilogy.
The characters are well developed and interesting, flaws and all!
The suspense is seat of your pants engaging!
I had to struggle to put it down to sleep!

This review originally appeared in the Irish Independent, June 7, 2015:
On the surface, the mystery and horror genres have never entirely been on speaking terms with each other. Mystery's roots lie in rationalism, or the belief that reality is essentially logical, and truth intellectual: consider...

Sigh. This almost got two stars. Almost. I mean, I liked it. There are things to like, but it's so far underachieving for King, so sub-par of his talent and storytelling capabilities that it made me cringe in parts and left me embarrassed for the guy. The last third of the book with Hodges and Ho...
