A Goodreads Choice Awards Finalist

From legendary storyteller Stephen King, whose “restless imagination is a power that cannot be contained” (The New York Times Book Review), comes a thrilling new novel about a good guy in a bad job.

Billy Summers is a man in a room with a gun. He’s a killer for hire and the best in the business. But he’ll do the job only if the target is a truly bad guy. And now Billy wants out. But first there is one last hit. Billy is among the best snipers in the world, a decorated Iraq war vet, a Houdini when it comes to vanishing after the job is done. So what could possibly go wrong?

How about everything.

This spectacular can’t-put-it-down novel is part war story, part love letter to small town America and the people who live there, and it features one of the most compelling and surprising duos in King fiction, who set out to avenge the crimes of an extraordinarily evil man. It’s about love, luck, fate, and a complex hero with one last shot at redemption.

You won’t put this story down, and you won’t forget Billy.

    I have always been a Stephen King fan, but I did not enjoy this book. I downloaded it for listening while driving cross country. The story developed at a tedious pace. I did not find it engaging during the long hours on the road. King has apparently developed an obsession with Trump, and unnecessarily politicized his characters in a manner that clearly reflected King's personal politics while adding nothing to the story. I would not recommend this book.

    Not what I'd consider your typical Stephen King but I enjoyed every minute of his story!

    I really enjoyed this one. Like many Steven King books, there can be small lulls as the characters develop and secondary storylines/narratives emerge this creating a more robust tale. Nevertheless, all in all a good read! The narrator was fantastic!!

    I’ve never heard someone read an entire book holding their breath, that was wild. Narrator might’ve made the book bad for me, but I think I disliked the story equally. Definitely not one of King’s best pieces of work.

    An interesting take from Stephen King. Not his typical novel. A good listen, a good read though, just the same

    Not your usual Stephen King stuff, kind of boring! I'm 6 hours in and I need to give up. The story is flawed and there's no point in many of the things that happen.
