2015 Audie Award Finalist for Fiction and Solo Narration—Male

Now an AT&T Audience Original Series

WINNER OF THE EDGAR AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL
#1 New York Times bestseller! In a high-suspense race against time, three of the most unlikely heroes Stephen King has ever created try to stop a lone killer from blowing up thousands. “Mr. Mercedes is a rich, resonant, exceptionally readable accomplishment by a man who can write in whatever genre he chooses” (The Washington Post).

The stolen Mercedes emerges from the pre-dawn fog and plows through a crowd of men and women on line for a job fair in a distressed American city. Then the lone driver backs up, charges again, and speeds off, leaving eight dead and more wounded. The case goes unsolved and ex-cop Bill Hodges is out of hope when he gets a letter from a man who loved the feel of death under the Mercedes’s wheels…

Brady Hartsfield wants that rush again, but this time he’s going big, with an attack that would take down thousands—unless Hodges and two new unusual allies he picks up along the way can throw a wrench in Hartsfield’s diabolical plans. Stephen King takes off on a “nerve-shredding, pulse-pounding race against time” (Fort Worth Star-Telegram) with this acclaimed #1 bestselling thriller.

love this trilogy!!! I've listened to it atleast 4 times and its better each time. I wish he'd make another. I know Holly is in another book but isn't the same. Will is a great narrator in all his work. Steve u do great work and this is one of my fave series after the dark tower. I will recommend it again to anyone.

Having read The Outsider and If It Bleeds before Mr. Mercedes. I was always wondering who this Bill Hodges was that Holly Gibney was always referring too! DUH!!! So after reading book one of this 3 book trilogy I can safely say I know now!! I’m excited to read book 2 and 3 and then back to The Outsider and If It Bleeds to complete the circle! I love Will Patton as the narrator! He has narrated each of the books in the series and that is definitely important to make the feel of the stories connect to each other!

I have listened to many audio books, this one is by far my favorite! Will Patton was the perfect choice for this book, he is awesome. I have already started the next book, "Finders Keepers" and once again, Will Patton is fantastic.

Stephen King DOES NOT disappoint! Wonderfully written and the narration by Will Patton was fantastic!! The many point of views from each charter was brilliant. I found myself feeling the anxiety and suspense of these charterers; that's what makes an awesome book!! I can't wait to get the follow up to this. Loved, Loved, Loved this book!!!!!!!

Great read. I read "Finders Keeper" first, so read this latter part of the story before the earlier part. The depth of psychosis and paranoia of the evil chqracter was quite believable.

Sometimes you can forget how good an audiobook can be after a string of mediocre books. This book will remind you. King get's you interested from the very first paragraph and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the last paragraph. Don't miss this one.

WOW Mr. King this is so new for you and a excellent change of pace. I understood all of the changes and more... and it was GREAT!!!!..I hope you continue this way of writing. I loved it. To be honest I was growing tired of complete Syfi kinda as getting lost could not figure out some of the off the wall monsters and such, but I have loved many past books, but this was a needed break. Kudos to you the Man and this changed me...... Great to you and the narrator.... Wow

Mr. King has definitely slipped from his previous writings. He really needs to quit with paying writers to do it for him or spend the time to do it well. This book was not original and barely interesting. Poorly thought out and planned. The narrator was a bit tough to get used to at first, but you'll eventually understand why he was chosen. But no need to be concerned with that because this book should be left on the shelf.
