Scribner will publish Stephen King‘s latest novel scheduled June 3rd.
The thriller is called Mr. Mercedes and is set in a Midwestern town where unemployment is rampant.
Here is more about the book from its description: “Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. In another part of town, months later, a retired cop named Bill Hodges is still haunted by the unsolved crime. When he gets a crazed letter from someone who self-identifies as the “perk” and threatens an even more diabolical attack, Hodges wakes up from his depressed and vacant retirement, hell-bent on preventing another tragedy.”
