End of Watch: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Stephen King

Narrated By: Will Patton

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: June 2016

Duration: 12 hours 52 minutes


The spectacular finale to the New York Times bestselling trilogy that began with Mr. Mercedes (winner of the Edgar Award) and Finders Keepers—In End of Watch, the diabolical “Mercedes Killer” drives his enemies to suicide, and if Bill Hodges and Holly Gibney don’t figure out a way to stop him, they’ll be victims themselves.

In Room 217 of the Lakes Region Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic, something has awakened. Something evil. Brady Hartsfield, perpetrator of the Mercedes Massacre, where eight people were killed and many more were badly injured, has been in the 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—the woman who delivered the blow to Hartsfield’s head that put him on the brain injury ward. When Bill and Holly are called to a suicide scene with ties to the Mercedes Massacre, they find themselves pulled into their most dangerous case yet, one that will put their lives at risk, as well as those of Bill’s heroic young friend Jerome Robinson and his teenage sister, Barbara. Brady Hartsfield is back, and planning revenge not just on Hodges and his friends, but on an entire city.

In End of Watch, Stephen King brings the Hodges trilogy to a sublimely terrifying conclusion, combining the detective fiction of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers with the heart-pounding, supernatural suspense that has been his bestselling trademark. The result is an unnerving look at human vulnerability and chilling suspense. No one does it better than King.

    I loved it, the story is fabulous, and the story telling is wonderful. I love King and Patton! I am so sad for it to be over though.

    Good finale, I agree that the story did get predictable at times but overall I enjoyed this last book of the series and was sad that it ended. I will miss the characters too. Will Patton is an excellent narrator.

    This was a good wrap up for the Mr. Mercedes series. Very well done. The narrator was ok in most of it, but I have to say I did not like the way he read the Holly character at all...Too robotic and not relatable at all. It was kind of like listening to an old lady robot. Hearing that character’s dialogue read that way was really annoying and distracting. I wish he would have just read it the way a normal person would speak like he did with the other characters. Other than that, it was good.

    I am obsessed with Bill Hodges and Holly Gibney and am 100% convinced it’s because Will Patton is such a phenomenal narrator. I’ll be listening to al three again soon.
