My Rating: 5 Stars
I read two books of Stephen King before this one, "The Shining" and "Carrie". In this book, Stephen King takes horror to a different level, going more for the thriller/crime genre.
A quick summary: In the city of Midwestern, people are lining up for a job fair when someone driving a Mercedes starts running over people in a non-stop rampage before he escapes without a trace. Months later, a retired cop haunted by the unsolved case is brought back into action after receiving a note from the killer threatening another attack. Will he be able to stop him before another massacre takes place?
I couldn't top the book down. The story is described both by Bill Hodges, the cop, and Brady Hartfield, the killer giving the perfect balanced perspective of two sides of the same coin, good and evil. As always Stephen King creates and masters the characters beautifully, inserting them in an environment that shows perfectly the repercussions of the economical crisis in people's lives and behaviours.
A great read!
