Stephen King is an excellent writer — but I’m often scared off from his horror books.
I generally don’t like horror.
Many jobless people are standing in line for a job fair, but then a Mercedes plows into the crowd killing 8 people and severely injuring many.
Bill Hodges, a recently retired detective from the local police department living the life of a retiree, receives a letter from an individual claiming to be the person responsible for the job fair incident, referring to himself as “Mr. Mercedes.”
Hodges is divorced, lonely and fed up with his life, occasionally considering suicide. …
Bill Hodges is age-62 in the book.

It’s a trilogy. I’ll keep reading.
End of Watch was a terrific conclusion to the Bill Hodges story.
Stephen King is as good a story teller as anyone working today.
I particularly like the character of his sidekick Holy Hodges.
