Mr. Mercedes – Stephen King  (2014, Gallery Books, New York)

Mr. Mercedes, the first book in a new crime thriller trilogy from Stephen King, is full of the typical twisted turns fans expect…but it chugs along for quite some time before it gets to the good stuff.  Trouble yourself to wade through the languid early bits:  the back half of the novel is brilliant and taunt, as retired police detective Bill Hodges and his assistants – the young, hugely likable and intelligent Jerome and the unpredictable computer genius Holly – race to stop a sicko from mass murder.
