Stephen King might just be America's greatest living novelist ... THE BEST THRILLER OF THE YEAR ... recommended to crime buffs and King fans alike. Sunday Express I challenge you not to read this book in one breathless sitting Guardian A thrilling cat-and-mouse game Irish Mail on Sunday Enough to say that Mr Mercedes goes out not with one bang, but several - all satisfyingly unexpected. He's back with a novel different from, but as good as, anything he's previously done The Times A tightly plotted crime novel that retains that essential, instantly recognisable flavour that has distinguished King's fiction...On one level, Mr Mercedes is an expertly crafted example of the classic race-against-the-clock thriller. On another, it is a novel of depth and character...rich, resonant, exceptionally readable Washington Post To be held firmly by the hand, through this tough crime thriller by the assured narrative skill of Stephen King, make the act of reading an event. There should have been a sticker on the cover 'no book mark required' Shots When it comes to grabbing an audience by the throat and giving them no choice but to keep reading, King has no equal, and I challenge you not to finish this novel in one breathless sitting ... King transcends genre, and is too warm and compassionate a writer to settle for jaggedly noir suspense. Guardian Expect page-turning suspense, jaw-dropping twists and all the addictive brilliance of a classic Stephen King FHM Nobody can do it quite like Stephen King ... He's a storyteller; one you'd have listened to for hours, as the sun set and the gulls cried on the dockside at Piraeus Spectator King aficionados will be riveted from the first explosion of violence to the final, equally seismic climax Financial Times Hypnotic and creepy, it deserves to be ranked alongside King's masterpieces Daily Mail America's greatest living novelist. -- Lee Child The most remarkable storyteller in modern American literature. -- Mark Lawson Guardian King's gift of storytelling is unrivalled. His ferocious imagination is unlimited. -- George Pelecanos
