Finders Keepers by Stephen King Review

A deranged fan breaks into the home of his once favorite author, hellbent on making the writer pay for refusing to publish more of his work and
for making his favorite character, Jimmy Gold, into a sellout. After he kills the writer and takes his money and unpublished notebooks, he hides
his treasure before being sent to prison for another horrific crime. Thirty-five years later, the criminal returns to society, ready to collect
his prize he’s spent his life waiting to claim. Yet he soon learns a teenage boy discovered his loot, and took it to help his family. With the
deranged killer hellbent on reclaiming his prize at any cost, only retired police detective Bill Hodges, along with his most trusted associates,
Jerome Robinson and Holly Gibney, can stop the murderer before the boy pays a terrible price. This is the plot for Stephen King’s Finders Keepers,
the sequel to the highly praised Mr. Mercedes.

This book is a phenomenal read and a great return to the life of Bill Hodges. The new characters of murderer Morris Bellamy and teenager Peter
Saubers is a welcome addition to the series, and the way the past and present collide is so fun to read. The way Mr. King explores the way
passionate readers interpret and absorb a writer’s work brings a new spin on the detective series, while the return of an old foe teases an
explosive and deadly concluding chapter in book three of the series, End of Watch. This is a great sequel that is not to be missed, so make sure
