Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it’s entirely up to you), that we can’t wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves. Hosted by Pen to Paper
As many of you know, I am a major Stephen King fan. I have recently read Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers which are the first two books in the Bill Hodges trilogy. Well in June of this year the third and final book in the series, End of Watch gets released, and is definitely on my wishlist 🙂
Brady Hartsfield, perpetrator of the Mercedes Massacre, where eight people were killed and many more were badly injured, has been in the Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic for five years, in a vegetative state. According to his doctors, anything approaching a complete recovery is unlikely. But behind the drool and stare, Brady is awake, and in possession of deadly new powers that allow him to wreak unimaginable havoc without ever leaving his hospital room.
Retired police detective Bill Hodges, the unlikely hero of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers, now runs an investigation agency with his partner, Holly Gibney, who delivered the blow to Hartsfield’s head that put him on the brain injury ward. Brady also remembers that. When Bill and Holly are called to a murder-suicide with ties to the Mercedes Massacre, they find themselves pulled into their most dangerous case yet, one that will put not only their lives at risk, but those of Hodges’s friend Jerome Robinson and his teenage sister, Barbara. Because Brady Hartsfield is back, and planning revenge not just on Bill Hodges and his friends, but on an entire city. (Goodreads)
This book sounds like it is going to be amazing, and I have to find out what happens to the characters that I have invested in over the previous two books. Stephen King’s writing is addictive and I cannot wait to see what he does with this next one. It sounds as though he is going back to his supernatural roots in this one, as the first two were slightly different to how he normally writes, but I still loved them.
So that is my Wishlist Wednesday for this week, I hope you enjoyed it, and happy reading 🙂
