I first told you about Bill Hodges, Jerome Robinson, and Holly Gibney back in August. They were the "good guys" in the Stephen King Novel "Mr. Mercedes". In part two of this trilogy, they are once again called upon to help a couple of exceedingly likable kids who find themselves in a bit of a sticky situation. You are going to like Pete Saubers and his sister Tina as much as Bill, Jerome, and Holly.
And not to be outdone by all the good characters, Morris Bellamy (the bad guy) is deliciously bad. By that I mean he is a bad, bad, dude, but he also has some crazy good lines of dialogue. So while you never, ever, are on his side, you do somehow seem to follow his terribly illogical thinking and are at times a bit sympathetic feeling towards him. Get this book. Be careful if you are driving while listening. I found my speed increasing as my heart rate went up.
The third book in the series, End of Watch, is scheduled for release on June 7th. I will be counting down the days and plan to be first in line to request it from the library.
