Title: Finders Keepers
Series: Bill Hodges Trilogy, #2
Written by: Stephen King
Narrated by: Will Patton
A masterful, intensely suspenseful novel about a reader whose obsession with a reclusive writer goes far too far - a book about the power of storytelling, starring the same trio of unlikely and winning heroes King introduced in Mr. Mercedes.
"Wake up, genius." So begins King's instantly riveting story about a vengeful reader. The genius is John Rothstein, an iconic author who created a famous character, Jimmy Gold, but who hasn't published a book for decades. Morris Bellamy is livid, not just because Rothstein has stopped providing books but because the nonconformist Jimmy Gold has sold out for a career in advertising. Morris kills Rothstein and empties his safe of cash, yes, but the real treasure is a trove of notebooks containing at least one more Gold novel.
Morris hides the money and the notebooks, and then he is locked away for another crime. Decades later a boy named Pete Saubers finds the treasure, and now it is Pete and his family that Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney, and Jerome Robinson must rescue from the ever-more deranged and vengeful Morris when he's released from prison after 35 years.
Not since Misery has King played with the notion of a reader whose obsession with a writer gets dangerous. Finders Keepers is spectacular, heart-pounding suspense, but it is also King writing about how literature shapes a life - for good, for bad, forever.

What a spine tingler! Stephen King has brought forth this second installment of The Bill Hodges Trilogy in a most captivating way. Brilliant!
Will Patton is an excellent narrator, who breathes life into King's characters, making them very personable.
Obsessed fans of iconic authors, makes me wonder if art imitates life on some respects.
Looking forward to reading installment #3. Stephen King is Amazing, what his mind comes up with blows me clean out of the water.
