Finders Keepers by Stephen King

The second novel in a trilogy that started with Mr. Mercedes, Stephen King brings back our favorite crime fighting trio, and introduces us to a new set of characters.
Morris Bellamy is infatuated with a character in his favorite set of novels and is livid at the author for discontinuing the stories and ending the character in a way that is less then flattering. After committing unspeakable crimes, Morris is sent to prison and his ill gotten gains remain buried. 

Decades later, a boy named Pete Saubers finds the treasure, being young and inexperienced he makes what he thinks is the best decision he can at the time. Now it is Pete and his family that Bill, Holly, and Jerome must rescue from Morris when he’s released from prison after thirty-five years.

The reviewer found this book thrilling, suspenseful and full of action, and recommends it to anyone who enjoys reading about the internal struggle between right and wrong. It's not necessary to have read the previous book to enjoy this one.

The reviewer was enchanted by the beautiful oil painting pictures, and enjoyed the message of sharing and community that is spread throughout the story. The reviewer recommends this short but sweet picture book for any and all ages!
