King has the popular novelist's gifts in spades - a flawless sense of pace, an ear for dialogue, an eye for the telling detail, a no-mess-no-fuss approach to characterisation
An almost constant build of momentum, growing in pace and tension until it finally explodes... manages to thrill with every page
A classic cat-and-mouse tale, this is King at his rip-roaring best
Fantastic...In part a love letter to literature, this is vintage King - jaw droppingly brutal but full of heart and humanity. Roll on the last in the trilogy
A remarkable display of storytelling.
It's expertly plotted, a series of pieces falling into place with almost audible satisfaction as the author burns towards his suitably horrific climax.
This novel is slick, seamlessly crafted, shockingly gory and packed with suspense
MR MERCEDES was a terrific thriller, and now there's a sequel. I squeak with glee.
FINDERS KEEPERS is a first-rate crime thriller, but it's also to King's credit that, more than 40 years into his career, he continues to experiment, and his talent, curiosity, and generous, humane spirit show no signs of flagging.
Unlike John Rothstein it seems Stephen King is determined to publish everything he can write. If books such as the effortlessly exciting FINDERS KEEPERS are the result, we should all be grateful.
