Another fine book by Stephen King. This book features the same main characters, Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney and Jerome Robinson, that were in Mr. Mercedes which was released last year by King. This time they are after Morris Bellamy who murdered an author named John Rothstein and stole his unpublished notebooks relating to a character that Bellamy loved and felt the author ruined. He hides the notebooks then returns years later(after being in prison for another crime) to find them missing. Discovered by a teenager named Pete, Hodges and the others try to track down Bellamy before he gets to Pete. This book was a fun read, as it details the motivations behind Bellamy, and the internal struggle Pete deals with in wanting to sell the notebooks to help his struggling family. The interaction between Bill, Holly, and Jerome are funny and poignant as they try to track down the killer. There was a lot of self-observation in the book, as you see how the characters of Morris and Pete try to justify the actions they take. With Morris it seems like pure greed, but with Pete he wants to do the right thing but is not sure what it is. For a Stephen King book there is barely a hint of the supernatural except for two parts which I won't give away. It's always fun to see what he comes up with throughout the year.
