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.
