Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King

KingI know what you’re thinking….Stephen King, no way, he’s too scary!  Before you skip this review, know that this is NOT a horror story.  Did you know Stephen King wrote short stories that would later become hit movies like The Shawshank Redemption and Stand By Me?  Here’s a thriller, the first in a trilogy centered around retired cop Bill Hodges.  Hodges is racing against time (and a heart attack) to catch the “perk” who drove a stolen Mercedes through a crowd of early morning job seekers, killing several of them.  Good suspense and compelling characters.
