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.

  • This book is frustrating

    By Vine lover 123
    I’m not done with the book yet, I just got to chapter 16. But every time I say “after this chapter I’m gonna stop for the night and go to sleep” King ends the chapter on a cliff hanger that makes you not want to put the book down! I have lost sleep because of this book! But that’s okay because it’s so worth it. Please buy this book. You won’t be disappointed

  • Tried but….

    By FRlO
    While I appreciate the very detailed and intricacies attached to locations, I felt it was overwhelming. Got to chapter 5 and gave up.

    I haven’t read a book all the way through since 6th grade I’m a HS senior and I finished this book in 2 weeks. Best book I’ve ever read I’d sell my soul to read for the 1st time again.
