Finders Keepers is the second book in Stephen King’s Bill Hodges trilogy. The first in the trilogy, Mr. Mercedes was an amazing read, and when I found out that there were going to be follow-ons, let’s just say that excited was an understatement.
This book follows three main characters, Pete Saubers, a teenage boy who’s father was injured in the city centre massacre where a man drove a Mercedes into a crowd of job seekers at a fair (from the first book, Mr. Mercedes); Morris Bellamy, a man who was obsessed with the author John Rothstein and his fictional character Jimmy Gold, so much so he was prepared to kill for it; and Bill Hodges, the retired detective who, along with his team, run a private investigative service – Finders Keepers.
This book follows all three characters and eventually intertwines their lives together. I love how King has made these characters all separate in the beginning and slowly brought them together in a nail biting story line. I couldn’t put the book down, which is quite normal for me when I read any of King’s work. He is a definite literary genius.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and cannot wait to get my hands on the third and final book in the series End of Watch.
