Summary

#1 New York Times Bestseller

From legendary storyteller Stephen King, whose “restless imagination is a power that cannot be contained” (The New York Times Book Review), comes a thrilling new novel about a good guy in a bad job.

Billy Summers is a man in a room with a gun. He’s a killer for hire and the best in the business. But he’ll do the job only if the target is a truly bad guy. And now Billy wants out. But first there is one last hit. Billy is among the best snipers in the world, a decorated Iraq war vet, a Houdini when it comes to vanishing after the job is done. So what could possibly go wrong?

How about everything.

This spectacular can’t-put-it-down novel is part war story, part love letter to small town America and the people who live there, and it features one of the most compelling and surprising duos in King fiction, who set out to avenge the crimes of an extraordinarily evil man. It’s about love, luck, fate, and a complex hero with one last shot at redemption.

You won’t put this story down, and you won’t forget Billy.

    I found this book difficult to put down. In typical Stephen King fashion, he hooked me on page one. In not-so-typical King fashion, there was no supernatural or typical “horror” in this one. Granted, there are some pretty gnarly scenes. I love this book! I genuinely cared about the main characters, and I love the peaceful ending of what was a wild ride of a novel.

    Once I started reading I could not put it down. Again Stephen King has grabbed me, and wouldn’t let me go. I was up several nights all night long.

    Another well written book by one of my favorite authors of all time. However, it’s an absolute shame that he’s turned into just another prima dona celebrity trying to force down ordinary folks throat what amounts to Left wing liberal garbage. My advice as a humble fan is to leave that drivel where it belongs, in his head or where it really belongs ….in the toilet.
  • Excellent read

    This great novel perfectly illustrates the notion that the way of the world is never a black and white proposition. It is lived in a landscape colored with countless shades of grey. Always changing in time.
  • Great!

    Like an old friend putting a hand on your shoulder, Mr. King glides you into his world. A refreshing change, but not so much as to lose all that we love him best for. Good believable characters, with well rounded emotions and convincing personalities. Different from his usual but still enjoyable.
  • Mr. King does it again.
