Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King

Book 22 of 52: Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King.

In this crime thriller by Stephen King, a mass murderer kills 8 people by driving a Mercedes into a crowd waiting in line at a job fair. A year later, when lead detective on the case Bill Hodges retires, he receives a letter from the elusive Mercedes Killer. He becomes engrossed in the case once again, determined to find and stop Mr. Mercedes before he can kill again.

This book isn’t perfect, but what I found fascinating about King’s approach to a detective thriller was his ability to break from expectations and create truly shocking twists. Alternating perspectives allow us to dive into the mind of our twisted villain, and get a glimpse of the king of horror at his finest.
