Meet The Author

"Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win."

Retired homicide detective Bill Hodges is haunted by the few cases he left open, and by one in particular in the pre-dawn hours, hundreds of desperate unemployed people were lined up for a spot as a job fair in the distressed midwestern city where he worked.  Without warning, a lone driver ploughed through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes.  Eight people were killed, fifteen wounded.  The killer escaped.

Months later, on the other side of the city, Bill Hodges gets a taunting letter in the mail, from a man claiming to be the perpetrator.  Hodges wakes up from his depressed and vacant retirement, hell-bent on hunting him down.

Brady Hartfield lives with his alcoholic mother in the house where he was born.  And he is preparing to kill again.

Hodges, with a couple of misfit friends, must apprehend the killer in a high-stakes race against time.  Because Brady’s next mission, if it succeeds, will kill or maim hundreds, even thousands.

Mr Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense, Stephen King, whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.
