Finders Keepers

Finders Keepers

1978: Meet Morris Bellamy the man who robs the safe of America’s most famous reclusive writer John Rothstein. But it isn’t just the money he is interested in. Morrie is obsessed by the author’s notebooks and is prepared to kill the author for them.

2009: Meet young Pete Saubers whose father was knocked down by an out-of-control Mercedes in a job line-up. When he discovers a buried trunk of money and notebooks of a famous writer, he has the means to rescue his family from poverty. If he can keep it secret.

2013: Morrie is up for parole. And he’s hell-bent on recovering the notebooks.

That’s when retired detective Bill Hodges – who has set up a company called FINDERS KEEPERS -discovers the scheme.

FINDERS KEEPERS is spectacular suspense. It is also King writing about how literature shapes a life – for good, for bad, for ever.

Nominated for the Audio Publisher’s Association Audio Award 2016 for Best Male Narrator (Will Patton).

A remarkable display of storytelling.
John Dugdale, Sunday Times
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
Sunday Mirror
A classic cat-and-mouse tale, this is King at his rip-roaring best
Mail on Sunday
It's expertly plotted, a series of pieces falling into place with almost audible satisfaction as the author burns towards his suitably horrific climax.
Alison Flood, Observer
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.
Glasgow Herald
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.
John Connolly, Irish Independent
MR MERCEDES was a terrific thriller, and now there's a sequel. I squeak with glee.
Natalie Haynes, Independent
This novel is slick, seamlessly crafted, shockingly gory and packed with suspense
The Times
An almost constant build of momentum, growing in pace and tension until it finally explodes... manages to thrill with every page
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
Keith Miller, Spectator
