That leaves him with little time to catch a killer. And what makes it worse for Hodges is it’s a killer he already knows.
But nobody will believe Hodges when he tries to tell them it’s Brady Hartsfield, the man hell-bent on mass murder from Mr Mercedes, the opening part of Stephen King’s suspense-packed thriller trilogy.
Hodges and unorthodox sidekick Holly Gibney need to unravel the latest mystery surrounding the suicide-obsessed Hartsfield.
Strangest of all is that he has been stuck in a mental hospital since the end of the first book, unable to stand trial after Gibney scrambled his brains with a blow to the head to stop him blowing up a concert hall full of teenagers.
Stephen King needs no introduction and the final story in this trilogy is sure to put him right back at the top of the best seller charts.
