"In a mega-stakes, high-suspense race against time, three of the most unlikely and winning heroes Stephen King has ever created try to stop a lone killer from blowing up thousands. In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. In another part of town, months later, a retired cop named Bill Hodges is still haunted by the unsolved crime. When he gets a crazed letter from someone who self-identifies as the "perk" and threatens an even more diabolical attack, Hodges wakes up from his depressed and vacant retirement, hell-bent on preventing another tragedy. Brady Hartfield lives with his alcoholic mother in the house where he was born. He loved the feel of death under the wheels of the Mercedes, and he wants that rush again. Only Bill Hodges, with a couple of highly unlikely allies, can apprehend the killer before he strikes again. And they have no time to lose, because Brady's next mission, if it succeeds, will kill or maim thousands. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable"--… (més)

I've been neglecting keeping up with Goodreads, I finished Mr. Mercedes over a month ago.
I read Mr. Mercedes and loved it so much I immediately picked up #2 when I finished.
It's funny, I put off reading this series because the synopsis didn't catch my interest. It took meeting Holly Gibney while reading [b:The Outsider|36124936|The Outsider|Stephen King|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1524596540l/36124936._SY75_.jpg|57566471] to pique my interest in the Mercedes Killer. As it turns out, Mr. Mercedes trilogy is one of my favorite King works. The characterizations here are truly amazing. Holly Gibney and Detective Hodges are two of the best characters I have encountered while reading. ( )

I went back and forth on this one. It's certainly nowhere near as good as King's best (what is?) but it is very readable and the first novel of his I've finished since Cell (having read pretty much all of them up to that point). It lacks the heart of his classics, and the treatment of race feels a bit laboured and dated after a while, but the characters are likeable or hateable as appropriate and it's gripping, especially the last 25% which is great. Probably more of a 3.5* than a 4* but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for old times sake. ( )

I enjoyed this one a lot! I like Stephen King better when he writes non-supernatural thriller stuff. ( )

Over the course of a couple days, I listened to Will Patton narrate Mr. Mercedes as I read along on my Kindle. Beginning with the heartpulling story of Augie, Patricia, and her baby as they waited in line in the early morning fog for the promise of a job that probably wouldn't happen, their scene comes to a grisly and traumatic end.

I'm a life-long Stephen King reader. I own everything he has written as hardbacks on several shelves of my home library. He could probably publish his laundry list, but so long as he kept the same colloquial warmth and characters, I'd be writing here how much I enjoyed it.

In Mr Mercedes, Stephen King writes a murder-mystery from the perspective of the victims, the killer, and the detective who is hunting him down. Unfortunately for Stephen King, Tami Hoag, Peter Straub, and Stieg Larson are much more experienced in this genre than he is. What Stephen King brings to the table his style, his colloquial characters, his warmth. Mr Mercedes is "Stand By Me meets the Green River Killer"

I enjoyed Mr Mercedes, I wanted to really enjoy it, I wanted to love it. It lacked the cold, hard light of day that Peter Straub brings to murder-horror. It lacked the grisly play of words and human damnation of Tami Hoag and Stieg Larson. Having read better murder mysteries and horror, I appreciate Stephen King's novel for what it is. I'd still recommend it to others, just temper it with "not the finest example of this genre, but still good." ( )

Augie Odenkirk had a 1997 Datsun that still ran well in spite of high mileage, but gas was expensive, especially for a man with no job, and City Center was on the far side of town, so he decided to take the last bus of the night.
