#1 New York Times Bestseller

From legendary storyteller Stephen King, whose “restless imagination is a power that cannot be contained” (The New York Times Book Review), comes a thrilling new novel about a good guy in a bad job.

Billy Summers is a man in a room with a gun. He’s a killer for hire and the best in the business. But he’ll do the job only if the target is a truly bad guy. And now Billy wants out. But first there is one last hit. Billy is among the best snipers in the world, a decorated Iraq war vet, a Houdini when it comes to vanishing after the job is done. So what could possibly go wrong?

How about everything.

This spectacular can’t-put-it-down novel is part war story, part love letter to small town America and the people who live there, and it features one of the most compelling and surprising duos in King fiction, who set out to avenge the crimes of an extraordinarily evil man. It’s about love, luck, fate, and a complex hero with one last shot at redemption.

You won’t put this story down, and you won’t forget Billy.

    A co-worker recommended this book. I'm glad she did. It was refreshing change for Stephen King novels. The man is so talented.

  • Cori H.

    I have never read/heard a Stephen King novel before and the comments sound as if this story is unusual. I hope not, because I really loved it and thought I would try another one of his books. At first, I didn't think I would like the narrator because he tended to swallow some of his words, especially at the end of sentences. But after I got used to his voice, I thought he did a great job and had a good sense of who the character, Billy Summers, was.

  • Russell S.

    My god, was this guy trying to whisper the entire book?

  • Cynthia A.

    One of his best books! Great story…..great narration.

  • Dana Holter

    Not what I'd consider your typical Stephen King but I enjoyed every minute of his story!

  • Razorette

    Great book. Completely different than any of the other SK books I’ve read in the past. Couldn’t put it down. The narrator did a great job with all the characters voices- especially “Dumb Billy” and “Smart Billy”. I hated when it was was over- I wanted more. Thanks Mr. King for yet another great book. It will be a classic!!!

  • Nicolas V.

    Best thing Mr King has written in years. Loved every moment. The narrator, as with most of Kings novels, is top notch. A thoroughly good time.

  • Crystal M.

    Really good. Subtly different from King's usual novels in my opinion. The deep dive into Billy’s thoughts as he works through his final ‘job’, remembering how he got there, and the brutal entry of Alice into the story, left me far more emotionally connected to these characters. The quiet nod to the Overlook also lets us peek in and see what the ol' girl is up to since she burned down. Narrator is really good throughout, one star off as it takes a couple chapters for him to really get into his stride.

  • Misty W.

    Loved the narrator, but just another tired old revenge book.
